We Will Graffiti Your Face: RVWS Summer 2023




Russian Hall, 600 Campbell Avenue, Strathcona

We’re finally doing a live in-person IRL event! Our first one since our last one waaay back in February 2020.

We’re back in the beautiful Strathcona neighbourhood of east Vancouver at the Russian Hall (600 Campbell Avenue, not far from east Hastings and Hawks Street).

It will be a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon in the neighbourhood.

Please join us for six incredible readers, books for sale, and high-quality print posters, too.
