Next week’s storytime theme is dinosaurs! Join us on the rocks in front of the library for dino-themed jokes, stories, snack and a craft. Registration is necessary; we only have a few spots left. We hope to see you on the rocks at 1:30 Tuesday or Wednesday!
Our book highlight this week is Potlatch Blanket for a China Man, by Canadian author Mei-Li Lee. Drawing on the multicultural history of British Columbia, Lee’s historical fiction story follows Tew Kin, a young scholar, from his home in China to the new colony in a distant world. Tew makes new friendships and alliances amongst other marginalised peoples—First Nations, Blacks, Hawaiians, Mexicans—but an accusation of murder forces him to flee. Following Tew from China to Fort Hope, from Langley to Barkerville, Potlatch Blanket for a China Man gives another perspective on colonial Canada.
