Partners

Word Vancouver could not happen without the generous and enthusiastic support of our Festival Partners. We want to give a big thank you to all the sponsors, funders, donators, organizations, institutions, individuals, and volunteers for their support and commitment to the festival; it happens because of them.

Our 2019 Official Bookseller:

Iron Dog Books is a mobile bookstore owned and operated by Cliff and Hilary Atleo, based primarily at SFU Burnaby in Tsleil-Waututh, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Musqueam territories (Metro Vancouver). Centered on the core belief that books should be affordable and accessible, Iron Dog Books sells new and used fiction, non-fiction, children's and young adult books from a 2006 Freightliner step van that has been converted to a store front on wheels. The shop also gratefully accepts donations of secondhand books, which allow Iron Dog Books to donate 20% of the retail value to rural and remote indigenous schools in Nuu Chah Nulth territory on the west side of Vancouver Island.
