My writing career’s formative years unfolded at Simon Fraser University — specifically at the Peak, SFU’s student newspaper. So, it’s neat that 105 Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia is one of the books set to be highlighted at the 13th annual Celebration of SFU Authors.

According to the SFU library, the Celebration of SFU Authors “publicly acknowledges and honours our faculty, students, staff, alumni and retired university community members who have authored or co-authored a publication, or its equivalent, within the past year.” The reception for 2018 publications will take place on March 14 (3:30–4 p.m.) in the W.A.C. Bennett Library (Special Collections and Rare Books) at SFU’s Burnaby campus.

Accordingly, the North Vancouver District Public Library has added a second event — on June 27 at the Lynn Valley Library (1277 Lynn Valley Road). Continue reading “Event: 105 Hikes at Lynn Valley Library on June 27”

Founded in 1907 as the Vancouver Mountaineering Club, the British Columbia Mountaineering Club is one of the province’s oldest outdoor recreation clubs. In 1973, the BCMC originally published (with The Mountaineers of Seattle) Mary and David Macaree’s beloved guidebook 103 Hikes in Southwestern British Columbia, which went on to sell more than 120,000 copies over six editions.

It’s only fitting that 105 Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia, an all-new follow-up to 103 Hikes, should maintain a formal connection with the BCMC. A portion of the revenue from sales of the guide, which comes out May 26 from Greystone Books, will benefit the club.

The BCMC has kindly invited me to present a 105 Hikes slideshow at its June social at the ANZA Club (3 West 8th Avenue) in Vancouver — Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories. The event is open to both members and non-members. RSVP on Facebook. Continue reading “Event: 105 Hikes at B.C. Mountaineering Club social on June 12”
