Books! They're not just those packages that arrive in the mail. No! They're those tomes of information and imagination we can pluck from the shelves of stores all over town, supporting our local economy and freeing our minds at the same time.
And in just two days, book lovers are putting on twenty-eight free sessions including family activities, readings, talks and demonstrations at local Chapters stores, all inspired by Earth Day. (In fact, there will be events all weekend long, too.)
Chapters Indigo Books & Music is putting on the series in partnership with the Association of Book Publishers of BC, the BC Association of Magazine Publishers and Sierra Club BC. “Earth Day is a fantastic opportunity for us to raise awareness of homegrown publications and the contributors whose talent they cultivate,” says Heidi Waechtler, project coordinator for the BC Association of Magazine Publishers.
Topics that'll be covered by BC book authors include food security, gorilla gardening and climate challenges. The Sierra Club will also put on talks.
Events will be held concurrently at Chapters Robson (788 Robson St.), Chapters Granville (2505 Granville St.) and Chapters Victoria (1212 Douglas St., Victoria) on April 22, 24 and 25. Click here for the full event schedule.
