Book Reading & Music
IF I FALL, IF I DIE Michael Christie
Thursday November 5, 7:30pm – 11pm
SBC Restaurant, 109 E. Hastings
Come to a fun evening with a writer, with musicians, and with skateboarders!
The Carnegie Branch/Vancouver Public Library is pleased to present local author Michael Christie for an interview, book signing and reading from his first novel If I Fall, If I Die (2015). Prior to earning an MFA from UBC, Michael was a sponsored skateboarder and travelled throughout the world skateboarding and writing for skateboard magazines. The VPL gratefully acknowledges the financial assistance of the Canada Council.
At 9pm, following the reading, the bar will open and the Festival and SBC Restaurant are pleased to present: Murray “Cretin” Acton of Dayglo Abortions in a rare appearance with his three-piece roots/country/blues band Hearts of Stone; and seasoned Canadian songwriter and storyteller Shiloh Lindsey who will offer an intimate, acoustic glimpse into her music.
Hosted by the SBC Restaurant, located in the former Smilin’ Buddha Cabaret and now the home of the DTES Skateboard Society.
