The Booked! Fernie Writers' Series is a firm favourite on the Fernie cultural calendar featuring some of Canada's best and brightest literary talents.

This event will also be streamed via Zoom on the night:
Meeting ID: 335 313 3316
Passcode: 930528
And will be available on the Library YOUTUBE channel following the event. 

The evening begins at 7pm with refreshments and cash bar, author reading with Q&A at 8pm.

Join Shaena Lambert for a discussion of her book Petra, led by local author Angie Abdou.

A dedicated environmentalist and climate activist, Shaena was arrested twice on Burnaby Mountain for crossing a police barrier, to protest the building of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline from the Alberta tar sands, and continues to actively oppose oil pipelines, logging of old growth, and other policies leading to climate change and environmental destruction.

Her most recent novel is Petra, inspired by the activist and green party founder Petra Kelly who changed history and transformed environmental politics, only to find herself caught up in a triangle of love, jealousy and murder.


For over 6 years, the Fernie Heritage Library has welcomed some of the biggest names in Canadian writing for a highly anticipated reception that includes an author reading and Q&A followed by live music and lively discussion. The evenings begin with delicious complimentary appetizers and a cash bar. The events draw crowds of up to 100 to fill the beautiful Fernie Heritage Library for an engaging evening celebrating the undeniable talents of each guest author.
