Join Carolyn Redl, author of Four Seasons by the Salish Sea: Discovering the Natural Wonders of Coastal Living as she discusses her new project. Part travelogue, part natural history, this enchanting book explores Island life over the course of a year.

Have you ever wondered what natural treasures flourish by the Salish Sea during each season? Or what botanical and zoological features knock the socks off every visitor? What unexpected piece of historical or gardening trivia sends new residents raving blissfully on and on about? And what are you missing out on by staying on your well-worn paths? Hear the answers to these questions along with dozens of stimulating and stunning photographs by Nancy Randall.

CAROLYN REDL is a retired university professor, who taught literature and creative writing for more than thirty years. During that time, she also wrote and published essays, short stories, poems, travel articles, and book reviews in publications such as The Edmonton Journal, AMA Insider, Prairie Journal of Canadian Fiction, and University of Toronto Quarterly. Redl is also the co-producer of “A Woman I Know: Canadian Literature by Women,” an eight-part series of programs for ACCESS, the Education Channel. She has lived on Vancouver Island on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish people since 2001.

Books available for sale during event courtesy of the Laughing Oyster Bookshop. Everyone is welcome and refreshments will be served.
