The Book Drunkard Literary Festival

Celebrate the holiday season Anne of Green Gables-style with Kallie George!

Join us as we decorate vintage Christmas ornaments and write Christmas cards to our kindred spirits, in celebration of the holiday season and Kallie George’s new book Merry Christmas Anne. With magical illustrations and a heartfelt message, this festive picture book is the perfect holiday read for Anne fans old and new and a joyous way to celebrate the season.

Kallie George is an author, editor and creative writing teacher living in Vancouver, B.C. She has written numerous acclaimed books for children as well as the The Magical Animal Adoption Agency series and The Heartwood Hotel series. She has taught writing workshops for children and adults across Canada, as well as in South Korea, and currently teaches at Emily Carr University.

This event will be a hybrid — part in-person and part virtual. Children are welcomed at The Historic Leaskdale Church (former home of Lucy Maud Montgomery) to make their ornaments, write their cards and sip tea, surrounded by LMM memorabilia! BC author, Kallie George will be ‘attending’ via Zoom on a big screen. If Covid restrictions prevail, the craft kits and cards can be done at home, while watching Kallie on your home device.


Your ticket includes craft supplies and a copy of Merry Christmas, Anne.
