It's a busy week for great events.
Tonight I am hosting the BC Book Awards Soiree at the Listel Hotel.
I have read the script, and I am very happy that I get to announce the 2010 winner of the Lt. Gov. Excellence in Writing Award. The two previous winners were friends Gary Geddes, and Terry Glavin. I can only hint that I also know the 2010 winner…. somebody I've known for more than 20 years!
The BC Book Prizes Soiree is always a lot of fun. There are great silent auction and door prizes. You can purchase the nominated books, and ask the authors to sign them.
This event is free, but you are encouraged to sign up for a membership of the BC Book Prizes Society
1300 Robson St.
Meanwhile… tomorrow night is the first Friends of Foo's Ho Ho fundraiser.
The ad hoc group “Friends of Foo's Ho Ho have had a number of social dinners so far. But this one is a biggie that you don't want to miss. Special guest speakers include Dr. Jan Walls, James Wright (Vancouver Opera), Chuck Lew, Jim Wong-Chu. There will be special musical guests.
And I am the host! I have memories of eating at the Ho Ho Restaurant back in the late 1960's and throughout the 1970's. Should I bring my accordion and play “Chinatown My Chinatown?”
