V6A - Thursdays at the Carnegie
Main and Hastings may not be known for its literary reputation, but that's where a group of writers meets each week. That group is called "Thursdays Writing Collection" and their work began the process of making V6A: Writing from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. The book has short stories and poems from the neighbourhood known as "Canada's poorest area code." The book is edited by writers Elee Kraljii Gardiner and John Mikhail Asfour. These are their stories along with two DTES writers, Muriel Marjorie and Henry Doyle.
