After more than two years flying over the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast to capture breathtaking images, and months of interviewing, writing and editing, photographer Chris Harris and writer Sage Birchwater are set to launch their new book Flyover British Columbia’s Cariboo Chilcotin Coast: An Aviation Legacy.
The official take-off will be Saturday, Sept. 29 at 108 Mile Airport’s Airport Appreciation Day.
It will be a day-long event, with Harris and Birchwater available to sign books. Then in the evening they will show the images of Flyover through a multi-media slideshow and share stories of their adventures. The presentation will take place in Nick Christianson’s hangar, starting at 7:30 p.m.
The launch and slideshow will take place at three other communities in the region. On Wednesday, Oct 3 Harris and Birchwater will be at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre in Williams Lake, starting at 7 p.m. On Wednesday, Oct 10, they will be at Anahim Lake School, starting at 7 p.m., then the next day, Thursday, Oct. 11 they will be at the Moose Hall in Bella Coola, starting at 7:30 p.m.
The hour-long presentation promises to leave the audience feeling they have been on a journey of adventure and discovery.
