We’re planning for 2016
Oh, what a great festival we have shaping up for you!
We’ve had great responses from authors J.B. McKinnon (100-mile Diet, The Once and Future World), author and naturalist Richard Cannings (British Columbia: A Natural History), Caroline Adderson (Ellen in Pieces), and Grant Lawrence (The Lonely End of the Rink) with a whole lot more in the works. Stay tuned for more details as they develop.
Here’s what our 2015 Festival program looked like:
The 4th annual Elephant Mountain Literary Festival, July 10 – 12, is a big-hearted event in a small-town setting. A readers’ and writers’ festival named for the mountain that overlooks beautiful Nelson, British Columbia, EMLF brings in outstanding Canadian authors and presenters while celebrating our exceptional local talent with a line-up of readings and discussion panels to engage, inspire, and entertain.
100-Mile Gala on Friday, July 10 at 7:30 pm
A Festival favourite, we pair local talent with BC wines for an evening of literary libations and a very good time.
Creatively yours: the panel discussions on Saturday, July 11
We put visiting authors and presenters with local artists and thinkers for engaging discussions of all aspects of the creative process.
All-Star Reading on Saturday, July 11 at 7:30 pm
What do Marina Endicott, Bob Bossin, and Kate Pullinger have in common? They’re sharing their brilliance on the Capitol Theatre stage in one unforgettable evening.
…and a Sunday morning no-host brunch for a delicious wrap-up to a great weekend.
The 2016 Elephant Mountain Literary Festival is shaping up to offer a gloriously diverse lineup of events, authors, and courses.
