The North Shore is home to a burgeoning community of talented authors, and we want to help connect local readers to local authors! 

North Vancouver City Library, North Vancouver District Public Library, and West Vancouver Memorial Library proudly present a special collection to showcase the gifted writers in our midst. The North Shore Authors Collection inspires, supports, and celebrates the literary talent of North Shore authors by featuring locally created content in all North Shore libraries for one year.

Selected local authors are invited to attend an opening reception event that takes place in the fall of each year, and will have the opportunity to participate in programming at each library system.

Applications for the 2021/2022 North Shore Authors Collection are now closed. Please check back after the North Shore Writers Festival in 2022.
