West Kootenay Wild! unleashed at Thursday book signing
Otter Books will be hosting a talk and book-signing by Marcelle Edwards, the author of West Kootenay Wild! at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at Self Design High in the Nelson Legion building, corner of Victoria and Stanley.
Marcelle Edwards has many talents and abilities, one of the most striking of which is her astonishing gift for storytelling. Combined with her deep feeling for geography, her love of outdoor activities and her keenly honed research skills, Edwards was the obvious choice to tell the story of the region in the beautiful new book, West Kootenay Wild!
A truly co-operative production, this full-colour coffee-table book also features the gorgeous photography of 36 local camera buffs and the considerable design skills of Ootischenia resident Catherine McIntosh. The trio of Edwards, McIntosh and Otter Books owner Letty Bartels worked together for nine months to create the publication which is now the premier written representative of the area. The brainchild of Bartels, who is also the editor, producer and publisher, West Kootenay Wild! is soon to be distributed province-wide by book supplier Monahan Agency.
