|John Mutford and Douglas Coupland. Yellowknife. June 1, 2013|
One event I did take in was a luncheon with Douglas Coupland (he was the headliner and certainly well known enough to fill a room all on his own!) He didn't talk about writing much, focusing most of his talk on his visual art, but he and his art are so fascinating and creative that it hardly seemed to matter.
Also during the festival it was announced that Jamie Bastedo's Nighthawk! won the 2013 Northwords Prize. A big congratulations to him!
To those who were instrumental in organizing and running this year's festival, great job! I know it was a team effort and you ALL deserve a round of applause.
