John Vaillant reads from The Tiger tonight at Vancouver International Writers and Readers Festival

John Vaillant's new book hit the stores two weeks ago and is already a best-seller.  I had a chance to talk with the Vancouver-based author of The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival, at Argo Cafe this morning about what sounds like another gripping book.  My interview will be coming soon.  Meanwhile, if you can make it to the reading, grab this chance to hear a great story teller, researcher and writer in person.

John Vaillant's first book was the multi-award-winning The Golden Spruce. Tonight, at The Improv Centre at 1502 Duranleau Street, Granville Island, he will discuss his new book, a gripping tale of man and nature in collision, that leads inexorably to a final showdown in a clearing deep in the Siberian forest.
