Wayne Johnston: Author in Residence

From October 25 – 27, celebrated Author Wayne Johnston returns to his home province to connect with guests and explore all that Fogo Island’s Berry Season has to offer: brisk hikes over the hills, endless berry picking, and evenings spent curled up reading by the woodstove. During his stay, Wayne will do a special reading in the Inn’s Gathering Hall and mingle with guests over cocktails afterwards.

Counted among the many that have been inspired by Wayne’s writings are the founders and staff of Shorefast and Fogo Island Inn, who are delighted to bring him to Fogo Island for this special residency.
