Green College Writer-in-Residence Oana Avasilichioaei hosts a discussion featuring poets Roger Farr and Sachiko Murakami and novelist and short story writer Lee Henderson on why so many writers are compelled to write about Vancouver: thinking and planning the city in the 21st century, under the weight of all that has been built, dreamt, destroyed, and built over again.

Time: 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Location: Green College Coach House, 6201 Cecil Green Park Road, UBC
