BC Book Tour: Sept 14-Oct 19

ECBC 3 Book Tour FBReally looking forward to getting back to my old stomping grounds in BC on this upcoming tour. I’ll be speaking at libraries and museums in locations covered in Book Three ~ Emily Carr’s BC: South Coast to the Interior. Kicking off in Victoria at Emily Carr House, I’ll head inland for several stops in the Okanagan, Shuswap, and as far east as Golden; then backtracking to Sechelt, Squamish and Pemberton before wrapping up at a Whistler Writers Festival event being hosted by the Audain Art Museum. How fantastic is that!

Here’s the schedule so far.

Klee Wyck: Emily Carr and Indigenous People

KleeWyckCover 1941Good thing the Merrickville and District Historical Society does such a great job of getting the word out. I’m so busy working on the third volume of Emily Carr’s BC that I haven’t posted a word about this presentation. As requested by the organizers, I’ll be focusing on Emily’s relationship with Indigenous people as illustrated in her first book, Klee Wyck, and I’ll also be talking a bit about the settler experience she recorded in her second book, The Book of Small. Part of the Merrickville 225 celebrations. June 17, Merrickville Legion, 2 pm.

Emily Carr: Evolution

Emily Carr EvolutionTruly delighted by the interest in Emily Carr here in my new home village. I’ve been asked to talk about Carr’s art and not being any sort of art expert, I’ve decided to discuss the evolution of her work based on the influence of events in her life.
