Vanishing Vancouver book launch etc.

Michael Kluckner’s Vanishing Vancouver book launch is taking place this Thursday, May 3rd, at 7 pm at the Co-op Bookstore, 1391 Commercial Drive, 604 253 6442,

There is some free parking on side streets nearby, meter parking on The Drive itself, and a lot of free parking around the Britannia Community Centre, 2 to 3 blocks north just to the west of The Drive.

The book costs $35; it’s a 224 page, full-colour softcover, 8 1/2 x 11 inches. (An amazing price, really, given that the original Vanishing Vancouver cost $40 in 1990 at a time when the average Vancouver house cost 300K.)

Check Michael Kluckner’s website for details on the talks and signings he is giving later in May and listen for Margaret Gallagher’s piece on the book on CBC Radio 1 (the Early Edition) on Thursday morning at 10 to 8.
