67. The Literary Cabaret

Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Camille Bordas, John Boyne, Sarah Dunant, Omar El Akkad, Grace O'Connell, Sylvain Prudhomme
Host: Tom Keenlyside

Even if you’re a “Lit Cab” regular, you might not know that the chameleonic band Poetic License—an informal collection of some of the best jazz musicians that Vancouver has to offer—has only half an hour on the Friday afternoon of the cabaret to rehearse with each of the authors who will collaborate on stage with them just a few hours later. What happens during those 30 minutes is alchemy. Later that evening, those same six authors take the spotlight to “perform” alongside the band, with music that fits each reading like a warm glove over a guiding hand. Audiences are guaranteed a sensory spectacle they won’t soon forget. Don’t miss out on the fun—get your tickets early because they will go quickly.
