After the holidays we awoke bleary-eyed in a pile of marked-up manuscript pages and remembered that just before Christmas, after a frantic headlong rush, we published Around the World on Minimum Wage, the new book from author/artist/filmmaker Andrew Struthers. Hangovers having subsided, it’s time to celebrate. We’ve got four launches planned, each of which will feature a reading by Andrew Struthers and books (& excluding Ucluelet, beverages) for sale. Admission is free — a helluva deal for an evening in the company of this caliber of storytelling talent, as anyone who’s read The Last Voyage of the Loch Ryan or The Green Shadow, or seen one of Andrew’s many and varied films can tell you.
UCLUELET — Feb. 22nd, Blackberry Cove Marketplace, 243 Main St., 7:30.
VANCOUVER — March 6th, Commercial St. Cafe, 3599 Commercial St. (at East 20th). Wander in any time after 7pm; the reading will begin around 8pm.
