Here’s a chance to put some real fun into the celebration of all things literary in Canada, and to do it in the heart of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The W2 Media Centre is a beautiful phoenix that has risen out of the ashes of the old Woodwards building, and here’s your chance to see it in all its glory.
Sean’s take on the subject of this particular party:
Just a note to let you know that VIWF’s Hal Wake has agreed to the the Giller Vancouver event along with local poet, actor and former Duthie Books bookseller, Dina Del Bucchia. It’s amazing to have two great supporters of local books and writing leading the event.

And here is what he looks like when he’s hosting. [This was taken at the W2 Real Writers gig last year during the cultural olympiad, at which I read — and clearly — took pictures.]
So — come to the party for the Gillers.
There will be wine!
There will be song!
There will be kc dyer, hiding behind a camera [Yeah, yeah…it’s what I do at things like this. It’s the centre of attention for me or nothing, it seems…].
I’m really looking forward to it. Hope to see you there!
