Every year our little town plays host to the Sunshine Coast Festival of the Written Arts. This is its 36th straight year and its the longest running writers fest to feature solely Canadian writers. It’s a fun and book-filled weekend every August and I always look forward to it. I’ve gotten to enjoy it simply as a guest and through my job.
This year I’ve decided I’m going to attempt to read at least one book from each author in attendance. That’s 22 authors in total, which isn’t an insane number. There are several I was already planning on reading (and I have a stack out of the library currently) but also several that would never have been on my To Read list otherwise.
The complete list is below:
Richard van Camp
Italicized names are authors I’ve read before though I haven’t read their most recent titles, which are most likely what they’ll be discussing at the Festival. I hope to catch up on at least some of those but I’ll start by focusing on the authors I’ve never read. I’m already able to cross Lindsay Wong off, having finished The Woo Woo and I’m currently reading Boys by Rachel Giese.
Have you read any of these authors? Does your town have any sort of reading or writing festival?
