Join author Shelley O'Callaghan for a short presentation on her personal journey to uncover the history of her family's "summer cabin" at Chilliwack Lake. How Deep is the Lake will open your understanding of the people, places, and histories that often are invisible - and why it is so important to go beneath the surface of that which we cherish in life.
Book synopsis: Curious about the previous inhabitants of the lake community where her family has vacationed for over one hundred years, author Shelley O’Callaghan starts researching and writing about the area. But what begins as a personal journey of one woman’s relationship to the land and her desire to uncover the history of her family’s remote cabin, soon turns into an exploration and questioning of our rights as settlers upon a land that was inhabited long before we came.
Shelley will have copies of her book for sale at this event.
