Real Vancouver BookThug: Thursday September 27 at W2 Media Cafe

RVBT

The golden light of September is upon us and it’s time to proceed with the autumn lingo.

The Real Vancouver Writers’ Series is proud to announce our first event of the 2012 fall season: Real Vancouver BookThug.

In the first of a series of collaborations with independent publishers we’re happy to showcase 5 amazing local writers who have published with one of the finest publishing houses in Canada.

We’re talking here, of course, about Toronto’s BookThug.

Not only does BookThug produce beautifully designed books of the highest quality writing but they’ve got one of the best websites of any publisher anywhere.

You want to buy books, or check out some audio or video of the authors reading/discussing their work? Hit up the site. You need some sweet new threads? Hit up the site. Down with Danish literature? Hit up the site.

Here’s how they put it:

“BookThug seeks to publish innovative books of poetry, prose and creative criticism that extend the tradition of experimental literature.”

We’re pushing all of our chips to the centre of the table on that!

So, without further delay, here’s the Real Vancouver BookThug line-up:
