What a great time we had at EMLF 2016
Thanks to our presenters, sponsors, supporters, volunteers and participants.
You made us shine!
Award-winning novelist and children’s author Caroline Adderson (Sitting Practice; Ellen in Pieces) was our Writer-in-residence, as well as a featured presenter alongside CBC broadcaster and author Bill Richardson (The First Little Bastard to Call Me Gramps); J.B. McKinnon (100-mile Diet, The Once and Future World), author and naturalist Richard Cannings (British Columbia: A Natural History), naturalist and biographer Briony Penn (The Real Thing: the Natural History of Ian McTaggart Cowan) were our eco-literary luminaries; and creative memoirist Grant Lawrence (The Lonely End of the Rink), and celebrated jazz chanteuse and children’s author Jill Barber were special guests at our 100-Mile Gala. We celebrated local literary award-winners, heard from experts in writing, illustrating and publishing, debated ideas, enjoyed great conversations, and had a darn good time.
“The Fest was great! Lots of good conversation and ideas, and the focus was very relevant.”
From the Toronto Star, April 16, 2016:
“Arguably one of the most beautiful lit fest locales going.”
