March 5, 2016: Serendipity 2016: Home and Away (Saturday, March 5, 2015)

Our speakers for this year’s Serendipity event have been recognized by awards for literary excellence and by passionate readers for their integrity, creativity and commitment to the growth of imagination and conscience in childhood. They write fantasy and science fiction, historical and realistic fiction for all ages of childhood and young adulthood, and they share an imaginative exploration of a real address—a sense of home and identity, cultural, national, personal—whether these homes are constructed realities, historical periods, or the Canadian here and now.

This year’s speakers include M.T. Anderson, Maggie DeVries, Sarah Ellis, Gregory McGuire, Jean Little, Cynthia Nugent and Kit Pearson.

Robson Square Auditorium, (downtown Vancouver near the Art Gallery), 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., breakfast and lunch included. Register now to take advantage of the early bird rates.
