Readers for December 2016

Please note: after our poster was printed James Lindsay informed us he was unable to participate on December 4th. To keep our roster full and vibrant, we've booked the novelist Christine Pountney -- who at this moment is the Writer in Residence at the Hamilton Public Library -- to present her work to the crowd! (We expect to announce James Lindsay for a future episode of Lit Live.)

New updated reader list for September!!

A fantastic line-up of interesting perspectives. We should say, though, that at LitLive we do aim for diversity and inclusion, however due to a variety of unplanned changes, we ended up with this particular list (of really great writers!) I thought it was important to mention this (though this will be a really excellent reading!)  the rest of our season will reflect our commitment to SMASH THE COLONIAL PATRIARCHY. Don't want you to think what we're aiming to MAKE READING SERIES GREAT AGAIN.
