Memoirs celebrate the ordinary life and share the corner of genius that exists in all of us. A Vancouver dancer in New York making a life on the stage after World War II. A Saskatchewan schoolteacher in the Dirty Thirties, later Fraser Valley tire salesman, raconteur. A Vancouver businessman with roots in the hardscrabble mill town that is now Vancouver’s tony Yaletown. A girl from Germany whose adolescence was marked by war, now an old woman painting the vanishing landscapes of British Columbia’s Fraser Valley.
These are some of the stories we have brought to print. Sometimes they resonate only within the family they were created for; sometimes they travel much further.
