John Vaillant has 2 upcoming events.

Milner Book Club
Location: Board Room, 3rd Floor

Join fellow readers the last Friday of every month, 12 noon, for our lively discussion about books, movies, culture, current events and anything else that pops up for discussion. Lots of fun and everyone welcome.

The next meeting will fall on October 31st, meaning that the next meeting will be informally known as the Milner Spook Club, meaning if you’d like to show up in costume, no one would think less of you. You are not required to wear a costume, but wouldn’t you rather tell people about the time you came to your book club as an Autobot?

Of course, there’s the books: the Commonwealth Prize-winning Mr. Pip by Lloyd Jones, where an unorthodox teacher educates his Pacific island charges with nothing but a copy of Great Expectations; and the Governor General’s Prize-winning The Golden Spruce, a strange true account of Canadian eco-terrorism with mini-lessons on botany, Haida spirituality, and other lessons you didn’t know you were missing.

For free reading copies and more information, please call Diego at 780-496-7000 or send an e-mail to: dibarra@epl.ca (DiegoIbarra)

VB Reads...Pacific Northwest Book Group
Village Books, Monday, January 26, 2015 at 7pm
Bellingham is uniquely situated in one of the most beautiful places on earth, marked by rugged mountains, serene islands, dense forests and dynamic waterways. It is a place of exploration and adventure, but also rest and relaxation. Unsurprisingly, the writers and writing that emerges from this area is also uniquely beautiful. This book club will explore this writing, focusing on writers from the Pacific Northwest and writing set in or about the Pacific Northwest, both fiction and non-fiction. This group meets the fourth Monday of the month at 7pm in the Writers' Corner on the mezzanine level of Village Books. Authors DO NOT attend.

The Golden Spruce: A True Story of Myth, Madness, and Greed by John Vaillant

When a shattered kayak and camping gear are found on an uninhabited island in the Pacific Northwest, they reignite a mystery surrounding a shocking act of protest. As vividly as John Krakauer puts readers on Everest, John Vaillant takes us into the heart of North America's last great forest.

Location: Street: 1200 11th St City: Bellingham, Province: Washington Postal Code: 98225-7015 Country: United States (added from IndieBound)
