Come to Tofino Community Theatre for a presentation and author Q&A with the author Caroline Woodward and Illustrator Carol Evans of their new book A West Coast Summer.
When: October 2nd 4 pm
Where: Clayoquot Sound (Tofino) Community Theatre
Pairing two dozen of Carol Evans’s wonderful watercolours with a lilting rhyming story by Caroline Woodward, A West Coast Summer tells of a timeless, idyllic season where “Sea salt in the air floats everywhere / and cedars smell so sweet beside the shore.” Children race bikes along sand flats, search under logs and in tide pools for tiny creatures, jig at the dock for herring, dance at a totem raising ceremony, pick berries, make memories and leave footprints in the sand.
Evans’s illustrations capture the jubilation of children exploring the seashore, inspiring young readers to take their own journey to the sea to discover who or what waits for them in the Pacific Northwest—and learn that the best memories are those shared with family and friends.
Readers of all ages will enjoy this charming collaboration, sure to become a West Coast children’s classic.
