On Tour

April 21, 2011

Deep Cove, North Vancouver, and White Rock
Posted by Kristie Cropley

The Lower Mainland tour has now come to an end.

Our last two days were spent in Deep Cove, North Van, and White Rock.  We had wonderful receptions in all of these communities, and our public events were very well-attended.  The audiences certainly enjoyed both author presentations and chatting with Sylvia and Grant about their books.

Thanks everyone for coming out!

Sylvia and Grant had a great time visiting the schools in these communities as well.  The kids at Dorothy Lynas Elementary were certainly excited when Sylvia handed out a piece of wool to everyone:

Meanwhile, the secondary students were captivated by Grant’s hilarious anecdotes:

You can read about Grant’s experience here.

This tour has been amazing.  In addition to meeting a number of wonderful people, we also explored some new places that some of us had never been to.  We definitely discovered some great places to eat, including Uli’s Restaurant in White Rock.  Here’s Sylvia enjoying the Uli’s experience:

Alas, all good things must come to an end, and so our tour has.  You can check out all our tour photos on our Flickr Photostream.
