I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at THECOMMENTARY.CA.
Stephen Hume joins me again. He has a new book out, A Walk with the Rainy Sisters: In Praise of British Columbia’s Places. It’s a collection of wonderful essays that eloquently describe some timeless places, some remarkable people, all reminding us of what’s great about this province. The book is at once grand, in how it describes some larger than life people and places, but also intimate in parts where it talks about the beauty of some places that we’re automatically transported to thanks to the author’s eloquence, and deep love for this part of the world. It’s a great book, one that’s been described elsewhere as ‘the best summation of life in British Columbia ever published.’ Stephen Hume is an award-winning journalist, who for more than 20 years now has been a columnist and senior writer at the Vancouver Sun. He’s won many awards for his journalism and writing. His previous book was the wonderful, Simon Fraser: In Search of Modern British Columbia. This new book, already a bestseller, is from Harbour Publishing. Mr. Hume will be speaking next Wednesday night, 15 December 2010 at the Vancouver Public Library at 7.00pm. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, Stephen Hume; Good morning, Mr. Hume.
