One of the most memorable and moving events in Writers Festival history was Maritime Medley, with Alistair MacLeod and Chor Leoni three years ago. This year the focus moves to the other coast, for beloved author Jack Hodgins
alternating his chosen readings with the music of that same acclaimed male choral group. Hodgins’s writing and voice ring out the essence of the West Coast, its idiosyncrasies and its misfits. He has captured the panorama of
British Columbia coastal life for four decades and, according to Robert Bringhurst, has given “British Columbia a place on the literary map of North America.” Chor Leoni’s repertoire runs the scale from sombre to comedic, well able to perfectly complement the passages that Hodgins will read.
This event will sell out quicky! Mark your calendar for September 8 and grab your tickets while you can.
