Michael Kluckner: A Retrospective

Our friend and colleague Michael Kluckner has been a prolific author (and artist) about Vancouver and BC for thirty-five years. To celebrate that feat, he is giving the Canadian Author’s Association speech at WORD this year.

Vancouver Public Library, Peter Kaye Room,

3:25pm Sunday 30th September.

Michael describes it as ” a sort of career review (very late career!) of the huge changes I’ve witnessed since the ’80s, covering the rise of the chains, the Internet sellers and the Internet itself, the demise of the Independents, the collapse of book royalties, weird award ceremonies, my many and long-suffering publishers, and genre-switching, in my case from heritage-history books to farm books to graphic novels. It will be rueful and wry and provide some advice for writers at various stages of their careers.”

Michael is an excellent story teller in the very best Canadian fashion. This should be interesting.
