Reading List for Incoming Festival

Inspired by the programming at the inaugural Incoming Festival, our friends at the Greater Victoria Public Library have put together a curated reading list to get more out of the themes on our festival stages. Put together by the GVPL’s finest, these librarian recommendations can be found at your local library and the titles are linked directly to the GVPL catalogue. Our thanks to librarian Marguerite Thompson for putting this beautiful list together.
