Now in its 23rd year, the renowned Canadian Authors Series is confirming authors for its 2016-17 season. Become a member and enjoy seven great evenings of entertainment that include wine, food, live music, an author reading, an engaging question and answer period and a book signing. It all takes place at Roselawn Centre for the Living Arts, a haunted but lovely Victorian Mansion featuring a 265-seat theatre!
The Canadian Authors Series is one of the best venues in Canada for writers to showcase their work. From September to May, we bring in the greats of Canadian literature to Port Colborne. Join us for seven unforgettable evenings.
In past seasons we were fortunate to welcome some of Canada's finest writers including Margaret Atwood, Pierre Berton, Mordecai Richler, Anne Marie MacDonald, Farley Mowat, Alistair MacLeod, David Adams RIchards, Conrad Black, Stevie Cameron, Lawrence Hill, humourists William Thomas and Stuart McLean. Olympians Silken Lauman and Clara Hughes and boxer George Chuvalo have taken our stage. Occasionally we've been lucky enough to present contemporary personalities such as Mike Bullard, Sandra Shamas, Peter Mansbridge, Margaret Trudeau, Mary Walsh, Rex Murphy, Lloyd Robertson, and Dr. David Suzuki.
The series has now placed 11,000 Canadian books into the hands of readers. Over the years the series donated more than $30,000 to charities including the Niagara Peninsula Children's Centre, Port Cares, Easter Seals and the United Way.
