Anakana Schofield – Author of Martin John and Malarky

I walked into a v interesting pile of books today, and welcomed them, with a great deal of assistance from my son, who helped me carry them to our home. Some will journey on and be hopefully traded in for copies of Betty Lambert’s Crossings for readers at our December VPL event. Don at McClouds Bookshop downtown was superbly helpful in sourcing the copies I have so far.

Amongst the “resting chez nous” stack were some local classics!

An Account to Settle: The Story of the United Bank Workers (SORWUC) (Press Gang)

Common Ground Stories by Women (Press Gang)

Some kind of government publication called Sound Heritage Vol VIII this one is called Opening Doors Vancouver’s East End.

And my favourite of the scoop:

Forever Deceiving You: The Politics of Vancouver Development. (Published in 72 by the Vancouver Urban Research Group)

Slightly further geographically afield from the viaduct I was delighted to scoop Jean Baudrillard’s For a Critique of the Political Economy of the Sign — a book only last week I was reading a few pages of upon google book preview. I can’t recall why I was reading it, perhaps in relation to a film, that’s my recollection, but I made a note to obtain a copy. Lo the pavement, how she does provide!
