Andrew Struthers at Shadow Mountain in Victoria, April 7


Andrew Struthers, author of The Sacred Herb / The Devil’s Weed, will be read­ing from and sign­ing copies of his smokin’ flip-book at Shad­ow Moun­tain Dis­pen­sary on April 7.

The Sacred Herb / The Devil’s Weed, which was announced as a final­ist for the BC Book Prize ear­li­er this month, is a hilar­i­ous look at a hum­ble plant that has enter­tained, inspired, and occa­sion­al­ly ter­ri­fied so many for so long.  As Leanne Allen from Vul­ture Cul­ture TV puts it, “Read­ing Struthers’ writ­ing is like … swim­ming in jel­lo. And read­ing his new book The Sacred Herb/The Devil’s Weed is half like that, and half like … float­ing in mer­cury.”

Join Struthers for read­ings and book sign­ing at Shad­ow Moun­tain Dis­pen­sary, 543 Her­ald Street, Vic­to­ria.  Doors open at (when else?) 4:20 p.m.
