Courtenay Launch Photos: 111 West Coast Literary Portraits

Ten of us launched 111 West Coast Literary Portraits at the Courtenay Library on November 17, 2012. From top left: Kim Goldberg, Peter Such, Keith Harrison, Des Kennedy, Paula Wild, Rick James, Joe Rosenblatt, Mona Fertig (publisher), Barry Peterson (photographer). (Not shown: Julie Angus)

And we had a fantastic time! 111 West Coast Literary Portraits was released last month by Mother Tongue Publishing. Photos by Barry Peterson and Blaise Enright. Text by BC authors. Introduction by Alan Twigg.

This exquisitely designed book features rare black and white portraits of emerging, mid-career and well-known writers who have lived in British Columbia, accompanied by excerpts of their writing. There has NEVER been a book like this before, and there will probably never be another like it in the future. So this book is truly a landmark in BC publishing history.

Our next launch for this book is Saturday, November 24 at the Nanaimo Museum at 1:00 pm

Here are some more pics from the Courtenay launch:
