Some End / West Broadway launch and appearance at Galiano Literary Festival


Left:  George Bow­er­ing;  Right:  George Stan­ley


George Stan­ley and George Bow­er­ing, co-authors of New Star’s forth­com­ing book Some End / West Broad­way, will fea­ture in the annu­al Galiano Lit­er­ary Fes­ti­val from 23–25 Feb­ru­ary this year.  The fes­ti­val has been around for nine years, and fea­tures talks, book sign­ings, and writ­ing work­shops by some of the best Cana­di­an authors, all on the beau­ti­ful Galiano Island.  Both Stan­ley and Bow­er­ing have par­tic­i­pat­ed in the fes­ti­val before, and the fes­ti­val has host­ed Bow­er­ing so many times that he is prac­ti­cal­ly a reg­u­lar fea­ture.

You can see the pair at 1:40 p.m. on Sun­day, 25 Feb­ru­ary, at the Galiano Ocean­front Inn.

The fes­ti­val also pub­lished a  fea­tured author inter­view with George Bow­er­ing, con­duct­ed by Kris Krüg As of now, you can still buy tick­ets to the fes­ti­val here.

The pair’s lat­est work is a mas­ter­piece of late style and friend­ship.  Some End / West Broad­way com­bines back-to-back two pow­er­ful new works by old mas­ters, George Bow­er­ing and George Stan­ley.  New Star Books will release the title on 14 Feb­ru­ary of this year.
