The Historic Joy Kogawa House Society invites you to join us for the Society’s Annual General Meeting to be held Saturday, April 11, at 11:00am, at 1450 West 64th Avenue in Vancouver.

2014 was truly significant year for our organization. We negotiated an agreement with TLC, The Land Conservancy of B.C., for future transfer of title to the Historic Joy Kogawa House Society, and we are in negotiation with the City of Vancouver for a Heritage Revitalization Agreement that will see the house renovated as an even more welcoming live/work space for writers.

At this year’s AGM, we will celebrate the relationships fostered and value created through 2014, and share our plans for the year ahead.

We look forward to seeing you on April 11.


11:00am – Brunch Reception
