"Vancouver in the Seventies" with Author Kate Bird
Wed, 7 December 2016, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM PST
Kate Bird brings us back to "Vancouver in the Seventies" with a visual presentation and book signing celebrating the launch of her new book.
Fresh out of the freewheeling sixties, the seventies was a decade of immense change for Vancouver—a time of protest, political upheaval, economic boom, and cultural evolution. Through it all, the Vancouver Sun's award-winning photographers chronicled the city’s metamorphosis.
Vancouver in the Seventies highlights 149 exclusive photos from the Vancouver Sun’s extensive collection along with fascinating essays by long-time Sun news research librarian Kate Bird and former Sun journalist Shelley Fralic, coupled with a foreword from renowned Vancouver author Douglas Coupland.
Together, these words and images form an unforgettable celebration of the decade in which Vancouver came into its own.
