The Lit Live committee is saddened to announce the passing of Kerry Schooley, the founder of the reading series. Kerry's vision and design for Lit Live continues to this day in the format and schedule of the series; we uphold his interest in presenting a wide stylistic range of writers, and remain committed to presenting talent from Hamilton and the region alongside published writers from away. Kerry participated in many, many ventures to promote literary work around Southern Ontario, in addition to writing books under the names of John Swan and Slim Volumes, editing anthologies of noir fiction, and editing the work of other writers, most recently for Seraphim Editions. He will always be missed in this corner of the writing world.
