D&M Authors Attend Fall Festivals

September 2017

Fall is a season marked by many changes: new classes, colourful leaves, cooler days and exciting new books! While September ushers in a busy time, the days are still long and the weather mild, making this the perfect season to get out and see your favourite authors as they tour the country.

Douglas & McIntyre will be returning to Word Vancouver on Sunday, September 24, to join our fellow independent publishers, where books will be available to browse and purchase. We will also be holding a free raffle for a chance to win some of our newest books, including the latest novel from John MacLachlan Gray. Gray will be presenting The White Angel, his novel based on the true story of the 1924 murder of a Scottish nanny in upscale Shaughnessy Heights. Grant Lawrence will also be at Word Vancouver on Sunday, sharing stories from his bestselling memoir, Dirty Windshields: The Best and the Worst of the Smugglers Tour Diaries.

Word on the Street is a national event, so readers across the country can attend! In Toronto, Dan Needles will be reading stories from his new book True Confessions of the Ninth Concession, while David Wolfman shares his favourite recipes from Cooking with the Wolfman at the Cooks n Books stage. In Saskatoon, world backpacker Mike Spencer Bown talks travel with fellow nomad John Early at the Brave New World Tent, and will later return to his home province of Alberta for the Banff Mountain Film & Book Festival, running from November 1-5, 2017, to present on his memoir, The World's Most Travelled Man.

In October, D&M heads north to the Whistler Writers Festival. Catch readings from John MacLachlan Gray, Grant Lawrence, Alisa Smith and Drew Hayden Taylor in one of the most stunning spots in Canada.
