Hot New OIW Event

Thursday February 26: General Meeting and Speaker Event: The Art of Writing

Trevor Ferguson, one of Canada’s outstanding writers and the author of nine novels and four plays, will discuss The Art of Writing. Ferguson has been called Canada’s best novelist both in Books in Canada and the Toronto Star. He is a past chair of the Writers’ Union of Canada. Born in Seaforth, Ontario in 1947, he was raised in Montreal from the age of three. In his mid-teens, he gravitated towards Canada’s northwest where he worked on railway gangs, and also began to write, working at night in the bunkhouses. Guest Fee: $10 NOTE: to accommodate Ferguson’s schedule, OIW's Annual General Meeting and Reading Night will be held on March 26, a month later than usual.
