We celebrated our 2nd Anniversary in fine style at the Underground Performance Space below the W2 Media Cafe on the night of Tuesday, January 24th, 2012.
A full house witnessed some fine readings from some of Vancouver’s best writers. We also heard from some writers visiting the city from Fernie and Toronto.
The event was livestreamed to the web and captured for posterity.
Below is part one of the feed. This video features some opening remarks about the Real Vancouver Series, how we started, where we’ve been, where we’re going, and then launches into Garry Thomas Morse‘s brilliant opening reading (which as opening salvos goes is right up there with Richard Van Camp‘s legendary “Fluff the Mullet” story from the very first RVWS in 2010), followed by Jen Neale, the charming and hilarious Zsuzsi Gartner, and a very strong reading by Arley McNeney.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the event. The writers, the volunteers who made it happen, and the fans who came out to support!
The event starts 15 minutes into the stream.
