Incite: Dazzling Debuts

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Central Library


The 2023 Incite season premieres with a powerful duo of debut novelists already making review headlines.

Journey Prize-winner Jessica JohnsBad Cree has made waves among critics and contemporaries alike, with Eden Robinson calling the work and its characters “wry, moody, and subversive” and Cherie Dimaline noting that once the story starts, “there’s no backing out, no pause, no stall.” 

Some Hellish, by Nicholas Herring, is the winner of the 2022 Atwood Gibson Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize, noted for Herring’s “passion for the language of work, [...] droll and philosophical, ribald and poetic.” 

Both join esteemed festival friend and Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize-finalist Carleigh Baker for an evening of literary magic with two acclaimed, propulsive debuts. We can’t wait to see you there.


This event is accessible two ways: by attending in-person at the Vancouver Public Library, or by tuning in to the online livestream.

Please register here and indicate whether you will be attending in-person or online.
