In 2016, the Thursdays Writing Collective had the distinct honour of being a finalist for the Vancouver Book Award. Our nomination was for V6A: Writing from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, editors John Mikhail Asfour and Elee Kraljii Gardiner (Arsenal Pulp Press).
Ever since, TWC has been a huge fan and supporter of the annual Vancouver Book Award. Year after year, it is a pleasure to read these excellent books, and to see local authors celebrated.
Congratulations to the finalists for the Vancouver Book Award! A special thanks to our friends at City of Vancouver sending copies of these wonderful books our way.
