Celebrating Literary Culture in Victoria

We are walking to celebrate Victoria literary culture and to remind Ottawa that our voices will not be silenced.

Walk across Johnson Street Bridge from the Ocean Point Hotel to Swans Pub to celebrate the bridge before it is replaced, and to celebrate The Malahat Review, a big winner at National Magazine Awards, and Ekstasis Editions for thirty years of literary publishing, Victoria institutions which have had their funding cut.

Readers at Swans Pub: Bob Hilles, Tim Lilburn, Patricia Young, Terence Young, Barbara Peace, Susan Stenson, Douglas Henderson and Marilyn Bowering.

Music from Light Sweet Crude.

We will pass the hat at the pub to benefit YES! an astonishing program for young people at risk.

Sunday, June 28
Walk Begins: Ocean Point Hotel at 6:00 pm (they have a pay garage)
Walk to Swans Pub
