Subject: A message from someone interested in The Lower Mainland Bookcrossing Meetup Group
Hi Marina and friends,
I'm a producer with CBC and I thought your group might be
interested in our next Studio One Book Club event on Thursday
August 25 at 6:30 pm...
We're so excited to welcome British writer Sarah Salway to
Canada and the CBC Book Club! Her three novels, Something
Beginning With, Tell Me Everything and Getting the Picture, and
her short story collection, Leading the Dance, all share a
common theme of how identity is formed through the stories we
tell about ourselves - or those that are told about us. They
also demonstrate Sarah's passion for experimenting with
different writing forms. Sarah was suggested as a Book Club
guest by author William Gibson, who is going to co-host!
It's a free event, but you do have to enter to win tickets.
For all the information and to win tickets, go to www.cbc.
ca/bc/bookclub - if people from your group would like to come
together, you can send one email and just let me know how many
would like to come.
Sheila Peacock, CBC
