Annual Haig-Brown Memorial Lecture & Haig-Brown Writer in Residence Program

The Haig-Brown Memorial Lecture Series was created by the Campbell River Arts Council in 2009.  The intention is to honour the legacy of both Roderick Haig- Brown and Ann Haig-Brown (nee Elmore).  Ann Elmore was a major force for social justice issues in Campbell River, notably around the challenges facing women.  The Ann Elmore Transition House is named in her honour.  The Haig-Brown Memorial Lectures provide an annual forum for writers to inspire a new generation with their vision for the environment, social issues and literary excellence.

Watch soon for an announcement about the 2019 Haig-Brown Memorial Lecture!
