Armstrong’s most recent book, A Series of Dogs (2016), is a memoir following all the tail-waggers that have featured in his various lifelong adventures (and even a few cats), and was a finalist for the 2016 Leacock Prize.  His early life as Buck Cherry, leader of legendary punk rock band The Modernettes, as well as the following fifteen years as an award-winning journalist at the Vancouver Sun, inspired his first books with New Star, Guilty of Everything (2001) and Wages (2007).

See Armstrong read alongside local writers Margaret Bollerup, Heather Ramsay and Sylvia Taylor.  Doors open at 6 p.m., show at 7.  Admission is by donation.
