This year’s theme is Genesis: Writing Life Into Art. We have an incredible line up of authors with a full schedule of events, workshops, and panels happening all throughout Vancouver’s historic Chinatown located on the unceded Coast Salish Territories of the Musqueam, Tsleil Waututh, and Squamish people.
