One Book, One Vancouver

My Year of Meats by Ruth Ozeki Selected for 2007's One Book, One Vancouver City-Wide Book Club

By Richard Eriksson on April 25, 2007 - 7:04pm

Almost missed this amidst Canuck Fever, but the Vancouver Public Library has announced that My Year of Meats by Ruth Ozeki has been selected for Vancouver's city-wide book club. Here's the description from the OBOV website:

Jane, an American filmmaker, is hired by a beef lobbying group to make television shows for the Japanese market. As she grows more familiar with her subject, she becomes increasingly alarmed by the beef industry's unethical practices and sets out to sabotage the program. She is joined by Akiko, the wife of Jane's boss in Japan. Together they plot to expose the meat industry's hazardous practices.One Book, One Vancouver: About the Book

Almost two months now I wrote about a sale at Discollection, a vintage clothing store on Hastings in Vancouver. Now comes word via email that the store is closing its doors, and is having a final 'fill a bag' sale. From Kim, the proprietor:

Starting April 23rd at 12PM we will be having a week long " fill a bag" sale, so for all of you that missed out the last time around this will be your chance to fill your bags, fill your boots, and fill your closets…. and the best news is, the bags are bigger and cheaper because everything really must go… and I want all of you to have it. I will be bringing out new items everyday of the sale and clearing out my back room which is stacked with vintage beauties.. 50's bathing suits, dresses, shoes, boots, sandals, summer tops, shorts and on it goes...
