Robson Reading Series Fall 2012 Lineup

This fall, the Robson Reading Series presents a vibrant season of readings from new books by authors from across Canada at the UBC Bookstore at Robson Square and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.
The season kicks off with readings from two gifted young novelists: Grace O’Connell with Magnified World and Ben Stephenson with A Matter of Life and Death or Something. Surrey resident Raminder Sidhu explores the lives of women caught between two cultures in her novel, Tears of Mehndi. CBC personality Grant Lawrence joins us with his acclaimed memoir, Adventures in Solitude, and Darren Bifford with his debut poetry collection, Wedding in Fire Country. Weyman Chan, a finalist for the 2008 Governor General’s Award for Poetry, presents his new book, Chinese Blue. Michael Kenyon and John Lent launch great new BC fiction. ReLit Award-winner, Dani Couture, reads from her novel,Algoma, alongside the hashtag-inspired microfictions of Julie Wilson’s Seen Reading.
In the 2012 finale, we present Alix Ohlin—“a writer who should be famous” according to the Globe and Mail—alongside the talented Toronto-based poets, Nyla Matuk and Matthew Tierney. All this and more at Vancouver’s longest-running reading series!

September marks Life Literacy Month – a month to celebrate literacy and lifelong learning. Did you know that nearly nine million adult Canadians struggle with low literacy? Get involved this month, increase your own literacy skills, and encourage everyone to get the skills they need to live a fully engaged life. Don’t forget to also look out for learner stories throughout the month, and be inspired by how literacy impacts lives.
