Take a Walk around BC with Stephen Hume


November 18, 2010

Few people can write about the geography, people and history of British Columbia as eloquently and knowledgably as award-winning journalist and author Stephen Hume. His new book, A Walk with the Rainy Sisters: In Praise of British Columbia’s Places, is at once a very personal collection of essays and a fascinating exploration of the people and places that make our province unique.

Stephen Hume will be touring in BC with book signings and an illustrated lecture “In Search of British Columbia,” which blends together material from his award-winning book, Simon Fraser: In Search of Modern British Columbia, with his new collection of essays. He will be appearing at the following locations:
