A Rock Fell on the Moon - Author Reading by Ben Parfitt and Alicia Priest

CPAWS-BC is proud to present an evening of readings by B.C. author and environmental commentator Ben Parfitt. Ben will be reading from his wife and fellow writer Alicia Priest's recently published book, A Rock Fell on the Moon: Dad and the Great Yukon Silver Ore Heist. The book is part memoir of Alicia’s childhood spent growing up in a remote corner of the Yukon, and part true-crime story about her father's involvement in a massive theft of ore from the mine that he worked for. Ben will be speaking on Alicia’s behalf on her book, her love of wilderness, and her journey with ALS, the neurodegenerative disease which has now robbed her of the ability to speak. 

We invite you to join us on this free special event on Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014, 7pm at the Vancouver Public Library (Central Branch), Alice MacKay Room.
