I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.
The Vancouver Writers Festival runs 22-27 October 2013 at various venues in Vancouver, chiefly Granville Island. Its artistic director Hal Wake joins me now to talk about the popular events, many of which are sold out now, and the many authors of national and international note that will descend on this town. Last year, the festival broke its attendance record selling over 16,000 tickets. Visit www.writersfest.bc.ca for tickets and information. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, Hal Wake; Mr. Wake, good morning.
