Jerry Hirsch

Author provokes thought

Many vignettes are humorous, some are factual, others illustrate his own unique personal biases

Author Jerry Hirsch will read from his recent book 100 Vignettes: the Box of Chocolates Approach to Everyday Life at the Campbell River Library on Thursday, April 25 at 6:30 p.m.

This book is a collection of light essays describing everyday life situations and issues, based on his own experiences, or from topics described in the news or the Internet.

Many vignettes are humorous, some are factual, others illustrate his own unique personal biases, and many reflect his practical Christian perspective.

This book is a thoughtful and humorous blend of Rick Mercer and the grumpy old men from The Muppets sprinkled with a touch of wisdom.

Each page is a thought-provoking vignette of our society with a number of “aha” moments of agreement.

  • Have you ever wondered why Europeans can’t be more like us?

  • Are computers male or female?

Jerry Hirsch is retired and lives in Abbotsford, BC. He has a PhD in Pharmacology and worked for many years for Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in Vancouver.
