One of the first events on the Writers Fest roster to sell out every year, The Literary Cabaret is a highly original coalescence of author readings and improvised jazz. There’s no better time to savour the heady atmosphere of the LitCab than now, as Poetic License and their multi-talented, extraordinary bandleader Sal Ferreras take to the stage with six celebrated authors for their final gig at the Vancouver Writers Fest. Hear their interpretations of works by Ivan Coyote (Rebent Sinner), Cherie Dimaline (Empire of Wild), Tom Lanoye (Slaves to Fortune), Sean Michaels (The Wagers), Zalika Reid-Benta (Frying Plantain), and Bindu Suresh (26 Knots).

Tom Lanoye is an award-winning Belgian novelist, poet, playwright and stage performer. He is the author of more than fifty works of poetry, drama, and fiction, and his work has been translated into fifteen languages. His bestseller Speechless was awarded several major awards and has been adapted for screen in 2017. Lanoye has won many prestigious European literary prizes. When not on stage, Lanoye lives in Antwerp and Cape Town.
