Roy Henry Vickers and Robert Budd are not only two great guests I’ve had on this program in the past, they’re fine guys whose work I’ve admired. Roy and Lucky have just published the fourth installment in the award-winning and bestselling Northwest Coast Legends series, Peace Dancer. I’ll get them to tell us about the crow, the flood, and the lessons in this new book. It’s already a bestseller. Roy turns 70 years old shortly, and to celebrate this milestone, there’ll be a free storytelling event Saturday, 11 June 2016 at Studio 700 in the CBC building here in Vancouver. The event is free, but to guarantee entry to the event one will need to register and a link is up on the website: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/peace-dancer-launch-roy-henry-vickers-70th-birthday-celebration-tickets-25251200019. Roy Henry Vickers is the distinguished artist, carver, speaker and author. And Lucky Budd is a historian, author, and broadcaster. He’s collaborated with Roy on a number of projects, including these four Northwest Coast Legend books. His most recent book was Echoes of British Columbia: Voices from the Frontier.
