Two Pembertonians will take to the stage at the 2018 Whistler Writers Festival on Friday, October 12, from 6:15pm, for the reading event Cooks with Books: Passionate Locavore Edition.

Traced Elements contributor Nidhi Raina’s samosas and chutney have become famous at the Pemberton Farmers Market. And new Pembertonian Nicolette Richer is the creator of the Green Moustache Organic Café and the author of Eat Real to Heal: Using the Gerson Method to Boost Your Immunity, Beat Disease, Build Energy and Heal Your Body.

They will appear alongside another local Jane Reid, who secured a publishing contract for her book after pitching at last year’s festival. Jane’s new book is Freshly Picked; A Locavore’s Love Affair with BC’s Bounty.


Also, once your appetite is whet, save the date for a reading with Jane at the Pemberton Library, on Wednesday November 21, at 7pm.
