Authors in our midst

Guildford Library hosts writers in panel discussion on Dec. 4

Did you know that Surrey has a vibrant writing community?

Join local authors, Ashok Bhargava, Geoff Tigg and Raminder Sidhu for a panel discussion on how home has influenced and informed their writing careers at Surrey Libraries’ Authors Among Us series on Dec. 4, 7-8:30 p.m. at the Guildford Library (15105 105 Ave.).

Bhargava is a multilingual poet, speaker and essayist whose poetry has been published in various literary magazines and anthologies. He received a Humanitarian award from UBC and he is a founder of Writers International Network Canada.

Tigg’s stories have been inspired by characters, events and places that have touched his life in some impressionable way. His fictional detective series revolve around RCMP detective Kelly O’Brian who investigates cases in the Lower Mainland and Gulf Islands.

Sidhu was born and raised in Mackenzie and now resides in Surrey. She holds a B.Ed. from the University of British Columbia and a BBA from the University of the Fraser Valley. Tears of Mehndi is her debut novel.
