“Welcome to Resisterville: American Dissidents in British Columbia” is here! Please join us tonight, Thursday, March 5th, from 7:30 to 9:30 pm, as author Kathleen Rodgers, a former Slocan Valley resident, talks about the book at New Denver’s Knox Hall.
Our beloved valley figures prominently in this exciting new book. Former Mayor Gary Wright, who will be introducing Dr. Rodgers this evening, and fellow locals Richard Caniell and Corky Evans were interviewed for – and are profiled in – this important work of history. The fascinating story of the Valhalla Wilderness Society and its longtime leader, the late Colleen McCrory, are also given mention.
Raven’s Nest will be selling books at the event, but if you cannot make it this evening (or if you would like a sneak peek) copies will be available at our store.
