Lisa Ahier’s Sobo Cookbook


Monday April 20th from 12pm to 1pm


Free at Munro’s


Sobo

Sobo is a destination restaurant, having outgrown its food truck beginnings, with visitors making the pilgrimage to the west coast of Vancouver Island just to taste chef Lisa Ahier's cooking - which is, to use Tofino slang, simply "killer". The restaurant's menu focuses on locally-sourced, seasonally-inspired ingredients from family-owned producers. The dishes are shaped by Lisa's Tex Mex and Southwestern culinary roots, and her experience gained across several US states, including her stint as executive chef of Cibolo Creek Ranch in Texas.

The Sobo Cookbook includes over 100 of the restaurant's all-time favourite recipes--recipes that have fed surfers, hungry locals, curious visitors and die-hard foodies alike.

Andrew MacLeod’s A Better Place On Earth


Tuesday April 28 at 7:00pm


Free at The Bard & Banker 1022 Government St, Victoria



A Better Place on Earth

In British Columbia, like most of the world, the wealth of the richest one percent has grown exponentially in recent decades, while the majority have found their incomes stagnant or even declining. The top 10 percent in BC now hold 56.2 percent of the wealth, a greater share than anywhere else in Canada. Our richest have wealth counted in the billions while the poorest sleep in downtown doorways, or have to choose between medicine and food. Those in the middle report working harder without getting ahead and many British Columbians owe more than they own.

Informative, well-researched, cautionary and hopeful, A Better Place on Earth provides an in-depth look at inequality and suggests what British Columbians can do to make sure everyone's basic needs are met, pull back stratospheric incomes and create a fairer society.

Lorna Crozier’s The Wrong Cat


Tuesday May 12th at 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm)


Free at Munro’s



The Wrong Cat

The poems in The Wrong Cat are vintage Crozier: sly, sexy, irreverent, and sad, and populated by fully realized characters whose stories take place in a small lyrical space. We learn about a mother’s last breath, the first dog in heaven, a man’s fear that his wife no longer loves him, and the ways in which animals size up the humans around them and find them wanting. With Crozier’s celebrated mix of vibrant imagery, piercing observations, and deeply felt human emotions, these poems provide an affirmation in the midst of the fluid, often challenging nature of experience.
