Book-reading and author discussion: November 15th, Yale B.C.

Next week, I have the privilege of speaking in Yale, B.C. -- where most of "Stone and Silt" is based. It's a tiny town in the Fraser Canyon, with an excellent historical site.

Yale has gold rush-era buildings, an old cemetery, and a Fraser River waterfront that echos with memories of raucous days past.

When you head to Yale from the north on the Trans-Canada Highway, you pass through seven tunnels and many bridges, many of which trace the path of the earliest stagecoaches on the Cariboo Wagon Road.

The reading and discussion will be at St. John's the Divine Historic Church, which is an old church built in the 1860s -- and which coincidentally plays a part in the mystery of Stone and Silt.

Then there'll be a book-signing at the nearby historical Creighton House Museum. All proceeds from the books will go to the Yale and District Historical Society.

It all happens at 2pm on Saturday, November 15th. Thank you, Yale!
