ON TOUR: BC Book Prizes Northern Leg

Shout out to the kids at Kitimaat City High who are getting it done—you guys are the best and it felt like a family welcoming us into your home (and your cookies rock!) Kitimaat Village: walking up to Sammy Robinson’s totem pole and then running into my brothers from Last Door, taking care of business in Kitimat—turns out Rob is Sammy’s nephew, he tells us to go see the man himself, and Sammy shows us where he carves. And his beautiful work. The chief. Haisla Hummingbirds. Totem faced tears.
Then…who’s doing all that laughing? Ebullient effivivacious (ok I made that one up) effervescent Eden Robinson (yes Sammy’s her uncle)—-oh to meet Eden—- no lie: Monkey Beach changed me.
And Virginia and the Mayor of Kitimaat and all the librarians, teachers, Kitimaat residents like Edward from Bombay who make up this warm welcoming city (oh and the guys doing taekwondo while Kristen’s reading a murder mystery!~~did she set this up?) Bryan and his awesome playlist, the halibut at Seamaster’s and the seals who serenaded us (ok they were really after the oolichans but a girl can dream), stellar day…I can still hear the giggle echoes of Eden.

Monkey Beach changed me, too. We’ve never had this conversation. We should. It sounds like you’re having a great time on this trip, Cathleen. Enjoy!

I love the idea of ‘giggle echoes of Eden’.
