The Sunshine Coast Arts Council, under the guidance of a Literary Series Committee, and with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, sponsors a series of author readings each year. Authors make a selection to read from their texts, followed by a discussion with the audience.

All events are held at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre starting at 8 pm. Doors are open at 7:30 pm, and admission is by donation. Come early as space fills quickly!

Literary Series Committee: Dick Harrison, Paddy Blenkinsop, Daniel Heath Justice, Paulette Caillé, Glenn Millar

Joe Denham is both an excellent poet and, no doubt, an excellent fisherman, and this is important, since the two careers interact and inform one another.
