Johnsons Landing celebrates history.


Submitted by: 

Ellen Burt


Johnsons Landing is well known for the landslide of 2012, but locals know there is a much longer and very colourful history. Johnsons Landing will celebrate that history with a launch of Ellen Burt’s new memoir, What Forever Feels Like on Friday, April 19 at the Johnsons Landing Hall. In the words of poet Fred Wah, the story is “a captivating account of the idealistic, but earthbound aspirations of a smallholder.”

The event, to begin at 3:30 pm, will feature readings from the book, movies of the old days, spoken word and music. Artists from Nelson and Kaslo will join with local Johnsons Landing talent. 

At 5:30 pm there will be a finger food potluck; bring simple food. More music and dancing will follow. The book launch will take place at 7 pm. Admission is a suggested $5 donation to cover the costs of the events. Books will be for sale. Families with children are welcome, dogs are discouraged. It should be a real fun time.
