Join us for an exhilarating ride through literary genres with Vancouver's diverse writing and reading community.

Our first installment of Strangers on a Train for the fall season is on Tuesday, September 24. Readings start promptly at 7:00 pm. Events are free to attend and open to the public (all ages welcome).

Featured readings by:

  • Emily Osborne (Biometrical; Quarrel of Arrows)
  • Ben Stephenson (A Matter of Life and Death Or Something; Good Dog)
  • Isabella Wang (On Forgetting a Language)
  • Noor Fadel (Langara student)

Hosted by Langara's English Department, Strangers on a Train is a monthly reading series 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.

The Kino Cafe is wheelchair-accessible. The venue has one floor, there are no stairs at the entrance, and the washrooms are fully accessible. The tables can be moved and adjusted, if needed, to allow for accessible seating anywhere in the cafe.
