Reading the National Narrative

Secret Vancouver

Apr 1, 2015

On Wednesday evening, April 15, I will be joining Eve Lazarus and Aaron Chapman at the Lynn Valley library in North Vancouver to talk about "Secrets, Booze and Rebellion: Vancouver's Darker History."

Eve is the author of several books about the built heritage of the Lower Mainland. Aaron has written books about Vancouver's infamous Penthouse nightclub and the Commodore Ballroom. Both know a lot more than I do about the unrespectable side of Vancouver's history but I will try to hold up my end by talking about the prohibition era in BC and in Vancouver in particular.

The event is part of Read Local BC, a campaign to promote local writers, publishers and books. Our event is free and begins at 7 pm. Join us.
