It’s a rainy Friday here in Vancouver, and, after the heatwave we’ve had recently, things are springing back to life! In honour of the rain and Vancouver generally being awesome, how about a Vancouver-themed book blog post?
This is the fifth in a series of blog posts that celebrate the “Book Blogs” created by students in Professor Siân Echard’s “The History of the Book” course during the spring 2015 term. For this assignment, students in the class were asked to choose an item (book or otherwise) from RBSC, research its history, and introduce it to a public audience through a blog.
This week, Katie Selbee takes a look at our first edition of E. Pauline Johnson’s Legends of Vancouver.
Katie’s blog goes into the history of this publication, RBSC’s copies, the life of Pauline Johnson, and more. Enjoy!
