Read Local BC

 

Monday November 7th from 6-8 PM at Salt Spring Library, 129 McPhillips Ave, Salt Spring Island, Read Local BC  is sponsoring a local reading on Saltspring with myself, Mark Leiren-Young and Caroline Fox so you get the full history of the conservation of killer whales and seabirds on this coast. Should be fun and a great chance to share stories on whales and seabirds.

Join us in celebrating our natural world with three celebrated BC authors, who will each read from their latest books:

THE REAL THING by Briony Penn
The first official biography of Ian McTaggart Cowan (1910–2010), the “father of Canadian ecology.” Penn provides an unprecedented and accessible window into the story of this remarkable naturalist.

THE KILLER WHALE WHO CHANGED THE WORLD by Mark Leiren-Young
The fascinating and heartbreaking account of the first publicly exhibited captive killer whale—a story that forever changed the way we see orcas and sparked the movement to save them.

AT SEA WITH THE MARINE BIRDS OF THE RAINCOAST by Caroline Fox
An illustrated narrative that interweaves the shifting seasons... See More
