NIC Readers’ Series Oct. 13

NIC’s Write Here Readers’ Series returns this month.

NIC’s Write Here Readers’ Series returns this month, as NIC brings some of Canada’s most widely recognized and award-winning authors to Vancouver Island campuses this fall.

On Tuesday, Oct. 13 Broadview Press founder Don LePan will read from Rising Stories: A Novel.

Laura Moss, co-author of Canadian Literature in English, calls the novel beautiful. “LePan gently but firmly touches on the big issues of the 21st century . . . to probe the human impact of them all,” she writes. ”. . . . Rising Stories might make you turn away from the clock, and maybe even lose sleep, to keep reading.”

The reading is free and open to the public.

It takes place in NIC’s Tyee Hall Lounge, on the Comox Valley campus, starting at 7 p.m.

The NIC Write Here Readers’ Series series is made possible through the Canada Council of the Arts.
