The Guardian (UK) published their Best Books on Drink list of 2017
Included on the list is 9000 Years of Wine: A World History
From the selection committee: "It’s impeccably researched: if you want to know the impact of the French Revolution on wine, this is the place to start. The statistics in particular are wonderful, such as a hospital in Darmstadt, Germany, that got through 4,633 bottles of white, 6,332 bottles of red, 60 bottles of champagne and 30 dozen bottles of port in one year, 1870. That’s where I want to convalesce."

Reading Lights, a Vancouver Public Library and CWILL BC partnership project, celebrates the work of B.C. children’s book authors and illustrators and offers unexpected encounters with an array of stories for children and their families near parks, playgrounds, schools and libraries throughout Vancouver. Intended to spark an interest in stories and reading, the program features excerpts of books and illustrations on lamp posts across the city for all to enjoy. This is the final year of our project.
