Vancouver publisher Talonbooks turns 50 this year! From humble beginnings as a poetry magazine with an editorial collective based at Magee High School in 1963, Talon magazine moved to UBC in 1965. By 1967, it had published so many young writers, Talon decided to become a book publisher for its authors. Now, with more than 500 titles in print, which have received more than 300 awards, Talonbooks can also boast that it is Canada’s largest independent publisher of drama, that it does more translations from Québec than anyone else and that it has introduced readers to many Indigenous writers. This afternoon, join us for readings by Jónína Kirton, Cecily Nicholson and Tetsuro Shigematsu, shining examples of Talonbooks’ esteemed roster.
