The Authors on Eighth Walking Tour and Writing Contest
August 13 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
The Authors on Eighth Walking Tour and Writing Contest is funded annually by the Writers Trust of Canada. Writers and book lovers of all ages are welcome to join us for this FREE event!
The walking tour invites you to experience Dawson City through the eyes of literary greats Jack London, Robert Service, Dick North and Pierre Berton. Participants learn about the colourful and captivating pasts of these authors while visiting their historic homes with costume clad interpreters.
The tour commences at the Jack London Museum, proceeds to Parks Canada’s Robert Service Cabin and concludes on the lawn of the Berton House, which houses Writers in Residence year-round. Refreshments are provided at the end of the tour, and the winners of the writing contest are announced!
