The Cariboo Regional District’s Williams Lake Branch Library will host an evening with local author Sage Birchwater and photographer Chris Harris on Friday, Jan. 18 at 7 p.m.
The event will focus on their most recent collaboration, Flyover: British Columbia’s Cariboo Chilcotin Coast: an aviation legacy.
“This is a chance for anyone who may have missed the slide show book launch in October to come and see some amazing photographs and hear some interesting stories,” says Birchwater.
The aviation history of the Cariboo Chilcotin is rich and colourful with float planes coming first, followed by wheeled planes and helicopters.
Harris and Birchwater take you on an aerial journey, told visually through Harris’ photos and Birchwater’s story-telling to draw on the memories and experiences of both bush-pilot pioneers.
The evening will include a slideshow presentation with commentary by Harris and Birchwater, and time for questions and answers.
You can also expect to hear about upcoming works and projects. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
