Everything Shuswap Book Launch

Everything Shuswap

By Jim Cooperman
Foreword by Alan Haig-Brown

The author, Jim Cooperman, has gifted his work to the School District, so that all funds raised will be dedicated to support outdoor learning in the Shuswap. He has been working on the project for the ten years his column, Shuswap Passion has been published in the Market News. In addition, he plans to provide all the digital research materials to the local schools.

The 250 page book includes:

  • Stunning photos by some of the Shuswap’s most outstanding photographers
  • Graphs, statistics and charts designed specifically to educate readers about the Shuswap
  • Maps that illustrate key features not seen elsewhere, including historical maps
  • Historical black and white photos from local museums

Join Jim in The Nexus for a presentation, music, a slide show and a reading. Then continue the celebration of this new book in the hall with a book signing, music and refreshments. 

Books are $30 and all funds raised support outdoor learning in the Shuswap through School District programs.
