    In store at Munro's Books. Doors will open at 6:30. Tickets: $20, includes a copy of Indigenous Relations You may recall last year's runaway bestseller, 21 Things You May Not Know About the Indian Act, which helped us all understand the legacy of that not-so-long-ago document. Knowledge is the first step. Next comes action. Author Bob Joseph, founder of Indigenous Corporate Training Inc, will be teaching a mini-class based on his new book, Indigenous Relations: Insights, Tips & Suggestions to Make Reconciliation a Reality. With an eight-part process designed for both individuals and corporations, Indigenous Relations will equip you with the necessary skills to respectfully avoid missteps in your work and daily life—benefiting workplace culture as well as the bottom line. If you have ever been curious about the state of reconciliation in Canada and what we can all do to make it a reality, you won't want to miss this event.

    One of Victoria’s finest short story writers returns this spring with another breathtaking collection. In Meteorites, Julie Paul explores the myriad ways we pick up the pieces after our lives have been shattered, whether through death or injury or subtler (but no less powerful) impacts. Twins in love with the same girl, grieving sons fleeing to faraway lands, duty-bound Sunday organists and criminals shedding dark pasts—no matter how quotidian or extraordinary their circumstances, Paul’s characters remain deeply human and infinitely compelling.

    Vancouver Island. It’s easy to romanticize our lush, idyllic home—but there’s more to life here than hiking, whale watching, and wine. In Island Home, local chronicler Anny Scoones gives voice to the quirkier side of Island life, from overenthusiastic foodies, to chainsaw carving festivals and the giant gnome just north of Nanoose Bay. No matter what prompts her latest “little think,” Scoones proves an essential literary tour guide for anyone intrigued by our eclectic corner of Canada. Round up your neighbours and enjoy this local launch!
