Internationally acclaimed artist Roy Henry Vickers and author Lucky Budd have joined forces for a new book, Orca Chief; a compelling fable that teaches a powerful lesson in marine conservation and respecting the sea.
On Tuesday, May 5 both authors will be at a reading at the Courtenay Public Library. The book – the third in a nationally bestselling series – tells the story of four hunters who are kidnapped by whales and taken to Orca Chief’s underwater home. There, they learn how to sustainably harvest the ocean’s resources. Nineteen never-before-seen artworks from Vickers bring this story to life.
The library presentation starts at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and all are welcome.
