Join us for a book launch event for retired VIU professor Kevin Roberts new title Flashers & Hoochies. Drop-in.
In all of Kevin Roberts’ writing we have a poet’s eye showing us the connections and pulses of his many worlds. In his new Book Flashers And Hoochies, he captures the spirit of the times as he writes about his experiences as a commercial salmon troller on the B.C. coast from 1974-9.
Heidi Greco says, of Kevin’…” His richly textured life is reflected in his writing.”
This floating book takes us trolling in a world that is no more. You’ll be happy to take this personal voyage with him.
“Roberts is a writer who continues to have important things to say and he says them powerfully and humorously” – Ross Clayton

Roberts richly textured life is reflected in his writing. Whatever part of the world he writes from he does so with a finger on the raw nerve that runs inside us and is linked inexorably to our mortality. –– Heidi Greco Prairie Fire
More fun than a gurgling ale and pheasant served by a buxom bar maid, his characters come to life with profound realism. Gary Sorkin – .
