Stellar panel rounds out 2016 Whistler Writers Festival

The 2016 Whistler Writers Festival included many great events for readers and writers. Aside from the fantastic pitch opportunities, what I found most enjoyable was the Sunday Brunch hosted by Bill Richardson (right).

Doing readings and chatting with their host were Emma Donoghue, Madeleine Thien, Anosh Irani, Affinity Konar, Gary Geddes and Cea Sunrise Person. From Person's Paris model who is an escapee from life in a tent with hippie parents to the Bombay hijra in Irani's The Parcel, this work concerned stolen childhoods.
