Vancouver Island Tour
Posted by Alan Woo
The Vancouver island leg of the BC book tour has been amazing. I get to visit communities I’ve never been to before like Nanaimo and Port Alberni.
The people here have been so nice and the scenery has been beautiful. Check out some shots below!

On Day One I read to about 40 kids at Park Avenue Community School who were delightful and full of rambunctious energy.
Day Two had me in front of a gym full of just over 100 kids who were simply thrilled to have an author visit them at their school, Alberni Elementary. One little girl asked me for a hug on the way out - it was super cute!
I’m looking forward to the rest of the week. Traveling with fellow author Anne Fleming has been inspiring and I love attending her presentations as I am always learning something new! A huge shout out to Monica Miller for driving us around everywhere and being such the organizer. And after two days, I think we finally figured out how to use the GPS, whom we have named Jackie, obviously.
For now, I’m heading to bed with the sound of frogs outside my window, their evening symphony lulling me to sleep.
