Strangers on a Train is a monthly reading series, hosted by the Langara College English department, devoted to creating dialogue between writers and writing groups that would not typically interact with one another. Each event features writers from a variety of genres and backgrounds: from spoken word to highbrow prose – the up-and-coming, the student, and the venerable. The goal of the series is to encourage discussion and promote collaboration within Vancouver’s diverse literary community (or with members of other Canadian literary communities).

All events are free to attend and are open to the public.

Next Reading: Langara Reads!

**Please note that all upcoming Strangers on a Train readings will take place online over Zoom (see specific links below).**

The next Strangers on a Train reading will take place on Tuesday, December 1st at 7:00pm, and will feature a series of 3-minute mini-readings from Langara faculty, staff, students, and recent alumni.
