The Way We GG
In honour of Wordfest's 25th anniversary, the 2020 edition of our GG Books Celebration will be a live-streamed storytelling event featuring 7 Wordfest alumni who are also past Governor General's Literary Awards nominees and winners. Each writer will perform a 5-7 minute open-mic style monologue about a personal memory or backstory from the year they were nominated, as well as reflect on the impact the nomination had on their writing. This event is hosted by Wordfest's CEO and Creative Ringleader Shelley Youngblut
If you've been a fan of Wordfest's The Way We Wear and Cabinet of Curiosities series of storytelling events you won't want to miss The Way We GG!
This event is organized in collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts to celebrate the Governor General’s Literary Awards.
