Warm writers, words & weather – 2017 Whistler Writers Festival wrap up
The festival began in founder and creative director Stella Harvey’s living room 16 years ago and remains a warm, welcoming, wonderful celebration of inspiring and aspiring Canadian writers.
Whistler Independent Book Awards 2017
Félicitations, Paul Shore, for Uncorked: My Year in Provence Studying Pétanque, Discovering Chagall, Drinking Pastis, and Mangling French winner of the 2017 Whistler Independent Book Award (Nonfiction Category). As the 2016 recipient, I am proud to see this award go to another Page Two Strategies production!
I was thrilled to finally meet author J. J. Lee whose 2011 memoir The Measure of a Man: The Story of a Father, A Son, and a Suit was a huge inspiration on my own writing journey. (We mapped out the next leg of this journey on restaurant napkins!)
Congratulations to author Louis Druehl at the launch of The Kawaii Scrolls with proud editor and publisher Kilmeny Denny of Tidewater Press. Cheers!
