Stretch your mind and take a journey to other worlds, where non-fiction authors explore personal and universal struggles with candour, grace, courage, and wit.

The panel features Linda Kenyon (Sea over Bow: A North Atlantic Crossing), Anna Maxymiw (Dirty Work), Lorimer Shenher (This One Looks Like a Boy: My Gender Journey to Life as a Man) and Caroline Van Hemert (The Sun is a Compass: A 4,000 Mile Journey Into the Alaskan Wilds). The event will also include the winner of the Whistler Independent Book Award for non-fiction.
