Lily Hoy Price will read from her book I am Full Moon at a reading hosted by Still Water Books at Uptown Willies on Friday.

Catch an evening of food, music and story

Celebrate the written word, music and good food this Friday

Celebrate the written word, music and good food this Friday as Still Water Books and Art invites you to hear Lily Hoy Price read from her book, I am Full Moon – Stories of a Ninth Daughter starting at 7 p.m., at Uptown Willie’s.

She will delight you with her stories of growing up in a thriving immigrant family of 12 in Quesnel, British Columbia in the early 1900’s.

Described as a memoir like no other, it naturally illumines Chinese culture, the immigrant experience, and her own thoughts and feelings.

As well, Corey Spetafore, a provincial award-winning musician, will be playing classical guitar.

You are invited to hear up-and-coming authors from Campbell River read from their new works, and you are invited to bring your own writing and read a short selection.

There will be books on sale from 4 p.m. and throughout the evening, a supper special of Fish and Chips at $9.88 between 6 and 7, with the evening program starting a 7 p.m.

Cost for the evening is $5 at the door. Contact Trevor or Ruth McMonagle at 923-1374 or for further information.
