author tour
Doug Gibson
author of Stories About Storytellers

Doug Gibson’s new book Stories About Storytellers (ECW, 9781770410688), is described in the July/August 2011 Fall Preview issue of Q&Q as “at once an insider’s take on the politics of Canadian publishing and a literary tour of an important era in Canadian letters from one of the industry’s living legends.” This fall Mr. Gibson is touring across Canada as a one-man show and will entertain crowds with stories about the authors he got to know well in the course of his career as an Editor and Publisher like Pierre Trudeau who lead him (“Run!”) into a whizzing stream of traffic that almost crushed both of them and Alice Munro who credits him with keeping her writing short stories when the world demanded novels.  18 tour dates have already been confirmed including WordFest (Oct.15), Vancouver International Writers Fest (Oct. 18), and International Festival of Authors (Oct. 22).
