Panel at Vancouver Writers Fest

Square graphic surrounded by a blue border and consisting of the following text: "34. YA Stars: Coming of Ages," "Vancouver Writers Fest," "2022 Festival," "In Person or Virtual," "October 20," "Grades 8–12," "Moderated by Tanya Boteju," and "Register Now at" These textual elements surround a square collage of four images: a photo of Malinda Lo, the cover of Lo's novel /A Scatter of Light/, a photo of Benjamin Lefebvre, and the cover of Lefebvre's novel, /In the Key of Dale/.

Am leaving soon for the Vancouver Writers Fest, where I’ll be appearing, alongside Malinda Lo, on a panel called YA Stars: Coming of Ages, moderated by Tanya Boteju and held on Thursday, October 20 at 1:00 p.m. (Pacific). I’ll be reading from In the Key of Dale and talking about the process of writing the novel, but I’m especially looking forward to talking to Malinda and Tanya about their most recent books, A Scatter of Light and Bruised, both of which are just amazing.

I’ll also be visiting a tenth-grade composition class at a high school in North Vancouver, which should be a lot of fun.

I’ve been to Vancouver only a few times before, so I’m hoping to spend some time getting acquainted with it. And although it wasn’t so long ago that I was complaining about the heat wave here in southern Ontario, I’m looking forward to some warmer weather than what’s being forecast here!

The Vancouver Writers Fest panel can be attended in person or via livestream, and tickets are still available.
