UPDATED: Positively 4th Avenue: Andrew Struthers at Banyen Books and Salt Spring Island


Vic­to­ri­an writer and film­mak­er Andrew Struthers (The Sacred Herb/The Devil’s Weed, Around The World On Min­i­mum Wage, &c., &c.) is back in Van­cou­ver for a read­ing and greet­ing at Banyen Books in fabled Kit­si­lano on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 23. There will be two show­ings of Dr. Struthers’s strange and dis­turb­ing pre­sen­ta­tion, at 6:30 and 8 p.m. You will find it well worth the price of admis­sion, which is nil.

Here’s Banyen’s own page about this event.

Mr. Struthers takes advan­tage of a lay-over on Salt Spring Island on his return jour­ney, with a lec­ture at Leaf Com­pas­sion, #105–109 McPhillips Avenue right in the heart of vibrant down­town Salt Spring.  Sev­en-ish?  Maybe lat­er, d00d.  If you do show up a lit­tle ear­ly, there’s Salt Spring Books right across the street, and they do have copies.

The Sacred Herb/The Devil’s Weed is an unfair­ly bal­anced look at all the whole mar­i­jua­na hoo-ha. The author’s pre­vi­ous book, Around the World On Min­i­mum Wage, an inner trav­el­ogue about his youth­time voy­ages to parts unknow­able, will sure­ly also be avail­able for perusal.
