More about the BC Writers Series:
From poetry to memoir and historical fiction, the BC Writers Series aims to showcase the wide variety of work being published in the province.
 
The BC Writers Series includes readings and presentations as well as school visits for children and teens.
 
The Powell River Public Library is excited to add these four wonderful authors to the list of the many we’ve been fortunate to host in the past, including Grant Lawrence, Mike McCardell, John Vaillant and Kyo Maclear.
 
These engaging and fun Library events are open to people of all ages, and are free. Because author readings and workshops are often popular, we recommend that anyone interested arrive early to ensure that they get a seat.
