In conjunction with the Young Authors Conference, Live Words brings five authors up to the Yukon, and this year they are offering a few more appearances in Whitehorse and the communities for readings and workshops. Yay! I applaud Joyce Sward and other organizers for their efforts to bring these writers to the community.
