Rudy Johnson adds two dates to book signings
Rudy Johnson has added two more dates to his December book signing events bringing the total signings to four.
Johnson will kick off his book signings today, Dec. 12 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Tourism Discovery Centre followed by a signing at the Open Book on Wednesday, Dec. 17 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.; another signing at the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin on Thursday, Dec. 18 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and a final signing for the month at the Station House Gallery on Saturday, Dec. 20 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Johnson was a pilot, a prospector, a sawmill owner, a rancher as well as the force behind the construction of the Rudy Johnson bridge across the Fraser River which he completed in 1968.
Simply titled Rudy Johnson, the book is a marvellous record of not only his personal journey from the time he was born in 1922, his arrival in Canada, his early years and finally his move to the Cariboo in 1947 and all the adventures he’s had in 92 years.
