We celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Douglas McIntyre publishing

Susan Crean, Scott McIntyre and Toddish McWong

The 40th Anniversary of Douglas & McIntyre Publishing took place at Dockside Restaurant on Granville Island on Friday night, Oct 21st.

The event was personally significant because

There were special cocktails named after books published by D&M.  I really wanted to try “The Jade Peony” – as I was part of the “One Book One Vancouver” committee that created the programming for the Vancouver Public Library to make Wayson Choy's first novel the inaugural choice for this award winning program.

D&M also published Many Mouthed Birds – the first anthology of Asian-Canadian fiction – co-edited by Jim Wong Chu
ACWW gave the 2005 Community Builder Award to publisher Scott McIntyre, along with Joy Kogawa
