The Good Companions: Literary Event feat. Caetani-inspired stories, poems and more

October 5, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

In lieu with Culture Days in BC, The Caetani Centre is hosting a special literary event by four well-known Okanagan writers, all of whom have published works related to the Caetani story.

Join us in the Caetani Centre’s Sveva Caetani Gallery, as you hear the fascinating story about artist Sveva Caetani and her noble Italian family, who immigrated to Vernon BC in the 1920s, told through poetry, historical fiction, short story, and even song.

Features readings/performances by Laisha Rosnau (author of Little Fortress), poet Virginia Dansereau, Steven Lattey (author of Behind the Fence), and Devon Muhlert (author of Cadence of Colour).

This is a pay-what-you-may event, suggested donation: $10. With proceeds going to our not-for-profit heritage and cultural facility near downtown Vernon. Books will be available for purchase and a cash bar will be on site.
