Save the Date: Kevin Chong at NVCL on Feb. 27

???????????Mark your calendars for an evening with Vancouver author, Kevin Chong, who will read from his memoir My Year of the Racehorse, described by Quill & Quire as “…a quirky, fast-paced gallop through the exhilaration, heartbreak, and financial responsibility of owning even a small share in racehorse.”

Kevin is the author of four books, including Beauty Plus Pity and the racetrack memoir, about his experiences owning a racehorse based in Vancouver’s Hastings Racetrack. He is an editor at and teaches creative writing at UBC and Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

Joining Kevin is Mary Tasi, a Squamish Nation resident who is married into a prominent heriditary chieftanship family. She will read from her book, Spirit Memory.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 27th for wine and light refreshments in the Dr. G. Paul Singh room on the third floor of the library. Readings are always free and open to the public. No tickets or registration required. For more info, visit here.
