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!

Chapters/Indigo

The final volume of my groundbreaking trilogy, Emily Carr’s B.C., presents the culmination of a journey far beyond anything I ever imagined when I set out to explore the landscapes, historical environment, and First Nations traditions that shaped an icon. Author and artist Emily Carr led a merry chase to some of the best-loved destinations and remotest outposts of the province, revealing her character and motivation every step of the way. Wherever this epic traveller (and her trusty canine companions) ventured, I was determined to follow. Book three traces the Vancouver years; forays to the Cariboo, Shuswap, Thompson, Sunshine Coast, Fraser Canyon and Okanagan Valley; concluding with what we know today as the Sea-to-Sky corridor, Carr’s last great expedition.
