Miriam Toewes has come to town. The author of A COMPLICATED KINDNESS, A BOY OF GOOD BREEDING, and THE SUMMER OF MY AMAZING LUCK is here in Vancouver for a brief writer-in-residence stint at the University of British Columbia.
Her arrival was feted last night by a large group of well-wishers who gathered at Christianne's Lyceum of Literature & Art in Kitsilano. As is usual at Christianne's fantastic venue, there was great food and drink and lots of mingling for all in attendance.
The event was sponsored by the Swayze Agency (this is literary agent Carolyn Swayze laughing with Miriam) and the place was packed.
My one regret is that I didn't get a picture of Kris Rothstein's Moose skirt. I am heart-broken about this, and can only hope that I will get invited to another event where Kris will see fit to wear it again and I can properly document the skirt in all its glory.
