52. Richard Wagamese's Starlight: A Tribute with Shelagh Rogers and Friends

The Vancouver Writers Fest presents

CHERIE DIMALINE, WAUBGESHIG RICE, EDEN ROBINSON

Host: Shelagh Rogers

Richard Wagamese’s
passing in 2017 was felt across nations. The acutely generous, insightful, lyrical author was deeply loved for his body of work and fearless exploration of traumas faced during residential school and beyond. Those unfamiliar with his work became familiar when Indian Horse, winner of Canada Reads, was turned into a major film last year. His close friend and host of CBC’s The Next Chapter, Shelagh Rogers, alongside esteemed writers Cherie Dimaline, Waubgeshig Rice and Eden Robinson, pay homage to one of Canada’s most important literary voices. Wagamese continues to be missed. Please join us to celebrate a man who reminded us all of humanity, humility and the beautiful ability of art to heal.

Also suitable for grades 10-12.
