The Revelstoke Branch of the Okanagan Regional Library is sponsoring a special Reading & Slideshow with author Chris Czajkowski on Saturday, October 25, at 4:30 pm.
Czajkowski is the bestselling author of Cabin at Singing River and Lonesome: Memoirs of a Wilderness Dog, and is currently on tour with her new book, And the River Still Sings.
A naturalist, Chris specializes in alpine plants. To provide accommodation 20 miles from the nearest road, she built two cabins single-handedly, using a chainsaw and hand tools. The article she wrote about this was published in Harrowsmith magazine and was nominated for a National Magazine Award. She also contributed regular letters to Peter Gzowski’s Morningside show on CBC Radio and has been giving slide shows in BC and Alberta for the past 20 years.
No registration is required for this free event – just drop in.
