Date: April 1 – December 30, 2011; book available in stores starting November 15, 2011; book launch on December 6, 2011
This project will mark Vancouver’s 125th anniversary by creating and publishing a very special book-The History of Metropolitan Vancouver by the late Chuck Davis. In writing the book Davis set out to cover each year of Vancouver’s incorporation in a chronicle style. In other words, the text forms a massive collection of stories, news reports, essays, character portraits and factoids that are joined chronologically rather than thematically. The hardcover book will have 512 large-format pages, 500 archival photos and will be published in October, 2011. This project will result in an appropriate and lasting monument to Greater Vancouver’s first 125 years.
Celebrate the book and the life of Chuck Davis with a free book launch event on Tuesday, December 6th at 7:00 pm. Join journalist Allen Garr, broadcaster Red Robinson, musician Dal Richards & others to celebrate the launch at the Vancouver Public Library—350 West Georgia Street, Vancouver. Other speakers include publisher Howard White, Councillor Heather Deal, Tourism Vancouver CEO Rick Antonson.
