prince rupert, in mist
Posted by Theresa Kishkan

We had a beautiful run along the Skeena River this morning from Terrace to Prince Rupert. The mountains were glorious—snowy and backlit with watery sun. Mary and I visited Prince Rupert Secondary School where the kids were eager and the staff welcoming. I’ve been to Prince Rupert before and love the air; it’s redolent with the ocean, loud with eagles. This evening we read as a group at the library. It’s fun to see the B.C. Book Prizes posters all around town (and I realize I’m wearing the same sweater as in my author photo). When Bryan was collecting us all from Cow Bay earlier this afternoon, a school bus passed with many of the kids who’d attended Nan and Kari’s event at the local elementary school. Instant stardom—excited faces at the windows, arms waving…!

Nice to get Book Tour news from the North to start my day down here in the south-west urban corner of your map. An eagle eyed us from a tree-top during our morning commute along Dollarton - perhaps a distant relative of those in Prince Rupert?

Wow, waving fans! Congratulations. It sounds like the tour is a lot of fun.
