Vancouver Writers Festival presents Sylvain Prudhomme, author of The Greats
October 20, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Vancouver Writers Festival presents The Literary Cabaret, with Sylvain Prudhomme, author of The Greats. Also with Camille Bordas, John Boyne, Sarah Dunant, Omar El Akkad and Grace O’Connell. Host: Tom Keenlyside.
Even if you’re a “Lit Cab” regular, you might not know that the chameleonic band Poetic License—an informal collection of some of the best jazz musicians that Vancouver has to offer—has only half an hour on the Friday afternoon of the cabaret to rehearse with each of the authors who will collaborate on stage with them just a few hours later. What happens during those 30 minutes is alchemy. Later that evening, those same six authors take the spotlight to “perform” alongside the band, with music that fits each reading like a warm glove over a guiding hand. Audiences are guaranteed a sensory spectacle they won’t soon forget. Don’t miss out on the fun—get your tickets early because they will go quickly.
Tickets: $30.00. Buy tickets here https://tickets.theatrewire.com/shows/67_%20the%20literary%20cabaret/events
