A new photography book collects some of wildest images ever taken of Vancouver. Flower power, Greenpeace, gay rights, Wreck Beach, the Gastown Riot – it’s all between the covers of Vancouver in the Seventies.
You can be part of the excitement this Friday, Oct. 14, when the Fox Cabaret (2321 Main St.) hosts an official book launch upstairs in its Projection Room. Guests will enjoy themed cocktails, a seventies dress competition, and mingling with some of the people behind the book, all while grooving to a soundtrack of 70s tunes. The event is from 7 – 10 p.m.; no cover.
Beginning today, Oct. 13 and until Feb. 26 2017, many of the photos will be on display at the Museum of Vancouver (1100 Chestnut St.). Or you can just pick up a copy of the tome, from publisher Greystone Books, through your favourite bookseller.
Here’s a little more of what to expect.
