You’re likely no stranger to Burnaby’s natural surface beauty, so we won’t harp on about the allure of Deer Lake at sunrise or Burnaby Mountain Park when a layer of fog hovers just below the skyline – at least not this time.
No, it’s time we looked deeper. Burnaby is home to some fantastic minds, both academic and creative. Is it because we’ve got one of Western Canada’s top universities? Or just because we’re a hotbed for culture and refined tastes? Whatever the reason, we’re happy to point you towards some books by writers that were born, raised, or moved here so you can bask in the prose of some of our local wordsmiths on this, especially bookish holiday on November 1st!
