Oct 24, Blurring Genres: A Vancouver Writers Fest Panel
“It’s achievement enough to publish a literary work, but one that combines genres—and excels in all of them—is a talent that few possess. Hiromi Goto has produced acclaimed poetry and novels—and now Shadow Life, a graphic novel that’s steeped in literary fiction with poetic magical realism. Harold R. Johnson is an acclaimed fiction and non-fiction writer. In The Björkan Sagas,he merges myth, fantasy, and history into an epic of exploration and adventure. Renée Sarojini Saklikar is an award-winning author, lawyer, and poet whose latest work was 10 years in the making. Bramah and the Beggar Boy is intellectually, geographically, and temporally wide-ranging: ambitious in scope. As the publisher explains, ‘The portal is deep. The portal is open. Take a deep breath. Jump.'”
