BC Book Prizes On Tour

May 07, 2012

Gubby and JJ take wine country by storm

I had the great pleasure of being with Bryan on the northern leg last year and it was an experience I’m not likely to forget, thanks to my wonderful companions Gina McMurchy-Barber and Stephen Collis. The opportunity to travel with Bryan again, this time in the Okanagan was something I could not pass up and the brilliant, funny and indefatigable JJ Lee is my author companion. For goodness sakes I get to travel with someone who ties his own bow ties each morning and will no doubt alter forever my miserable take on things sartorial!  I plan to visit a tailor as soon as I get home.
The gigs, especially the elementary schools are always full of surprises. Cawston, tiny little farm community Cawston, was a wonderful surprise nestled in the stunning Similkameen Valley a stone’s throw from Keromeos. Morning class so had their full attention unlike the lovely little darlings at the Osoyoos Elementary in the afternoon who itched and yawned much of their way through my brilliant offering. A ‘nice’ little touch was the laptop falling from its perch on the desk and knocking over a large container of marbles that spewed forth in every direction. All quite normal and acceptable of course.
And on to Nelson tomorrow morning. Three hours or so through more lovely country and expectations of good music, laughs and fashion tips.
More later,
Gary Kent

2012 Tour Begins Tomorrow!

The 9th annual BC Book Prizes On Tour kicks of tomorrow in Peace Country!  This will be our first time visiting Peace Country, and I couldn’t be more excited about visiting a number of communities up there, including Fort St. John, Fort Nelson, and Dawson Creek.  After Peace Country, we will visit our friends, both old and new, in Northern BC, Southern BC, the Okanagan, and Kootenays.  With a total of 35 communities and 11 authors this year, we’re in for a fantastic tour!  Check out this year’s schedule for a public event near you.
