Created by Alma Lee, Founder and Inaugural Director of the Vancouver International Writers and Readers Festival, Literary Cabaret is a magical blend of great music and great writing. Hosted by Sal Ferreras and his band Poetic License, the cabaret is an intimate evening set to music with some of B.C.’s greatest writers.

On stage are novelist and playwright Anosh Irani, novelist and short story writer Shaena Lambert, Steven Galloway, author of The Cellist of Sarajevo, and Shane Koyczan, writer, poet and one of the world’s premier spoken word performers. This is an evening of great writers and great music.
