I’ve been on Vancouver Island for about five days and will be here for another week. The primary reason I’m on the Island is to guest host All Points West on CBC Radio 1, filling in for the regular host Jo-Ann Roberts. The show airs Monday – Friday 3pm – 6pm on CBC Radio 1 and can be heard everywhere in BC except Vancouver.
This past weekend I tagged along on my wife’s Vancouver Island tour to celebrate our first anniversary, hitting Tofino (thanks to everyone at Sobo Restaurant, the Middle Beach Lodge, and the Tofino Legion for treating us so well) and then to the Waverley Hotel in the little town of Cumberland, which resembles a kind of West Coast Deadwood.
This week, I’ll be doing two book events on the Island: on Monday May 16, I’ll be at Bolen Books at the Hillside Shopping Centre at 7pm for a signing, reading, and Q + A. On Friday, I’ll be at Volume One Books in Duncan at 8pm for an event that will include a reading, slideshow, Q + A, signing, and short movie.
Hope to see you!
