Book Launch: A West Coast Summer

October 5, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Join us at the Maritime Museum of BC for an afternoon with Caroline Woodward and Carol Evans, in celebration of the launch of their charming, beautifully watercolour-illustrated book, A West Coast Summer.

A West Coast Summer collects fourteen of Carol Evans’s paintings, each inspired by local kids delighting in the coastal landscape—racing bikes along sand flats, searching under logs and in tide pools for tiny creatures, jigging at the dock for herring, dancing at a totem pole ceremony and leaving footprints in the sand. Matching Evans’s watercolours with a lilting rhyming story by Caroline Woodward, this beautiful children’s book tells of a timeless, idyllic summer where “Sea salt in the air floats everywhere/and cedars smell so sweet beside the shore.” Readers of all ages will enjoy this charming collaboration, sure to become a West Coast children’s classic.

During the event, the authors will display some of the watercolour illustrations, engage in a short reading, and accept audience questions and have a small dialogue between one another.

Time: 4:00 PM

Cost: FREE (Admission to the Museum included)

No reservations are required, though seating will be first come, first serve. For more information, contact the Museum at info@mmbc.bc.ca or 250.385.4222.
