FEATURED SPEAKER – LANA OKERLUND Booksellers of BC (Postponed from February 2019)
When Lana Okerlund realized that very little was known about the earliest booksellers in British Columbia, she decided to find out who they were. She has since spent two years researching their stories and tonight she’ll introduce some of the men and women who pioneered bookselling in the province.
Lana Okerlund is a Vancouver-based book editor and writer with an interest in local history. Her blog, A Most Agreeable Place (www.agreeableplace.com), is dedicated to sharing the stories and images of British Columbia’s early bookselling scene.
