Readings by local writers will highlight the final lobby night of the season for the Golden Ears Writers.

Eight writers will be doing 10-minute readings from their works, which include a range of short stories, essays, novels and memoir excerpts.

They will  include Lynn Easton, who is working on a manuscript of essays at the SFU Writer’s Studio that examines gender, motherhood and the evolution of feminism.

John Hargreaves, a reformed master mariner, marine superintendent, firefighter, ambulance driver and lecturer, will be reading from his memoir.

Katherine Wagner, who writes speculative fiction, will also read, as will Ami Cameron, who just finished the first draft of a novel and is now working on a collection of short stories.

Cassandra Schoeber, a writer of fantasy and horror, and fictional writer Ronda Payne, Linda Whitelock and Jacquelyn Johnston round out the reading list.
