Heritage Books, Hobson’s Choice and Poetry


It is a rainy, rainy January so far in the V3H. We hope that you’re all staying dry, and that your ark construction projects are progressing smoothly. When you get a break, here are a few things you might want to check out this week.

Coquitlam’s Mackin House Museum is launching two historical literature book clubs, one the afternoon and the other in the evening. The clubs are open to the public and interested history and literature buffs. Everyone is invited to attend the organizational sessions, which will both take place in the parlour at Mackin House [map]. The first session is on Wednesday, January 13 at 6:30 pm and the second is on Thursday, January 14th at 2pm. Titles for discussion will be chosen as a group. For more information, or to register call call 604.516.6151 or email info@coquitlamheritage.ca.

Beginning on Thursday, January 14 Stage 43 will be presenting Hobson’s Choice at Evergreen Cultural Centre [map]. Three daughters, one drunken father, a shy shoemaker and an ambitious woman make for plenty of laughs in this treasure of a play. Performances run from January 14-17, and then again from January 21-23. For more information, or to buy tickets, call 604.927.6555. You can also enjoy a fabulous 3 course pre-dinner show for $30 at Port Moody’s Saint St. Grill [map]. The dinners run from from 6-8pm on show days. Call 604.937.7477 in advance to reserve and let them know your are coming for the HOBSON’S dinner.

Here’s a promotional clip from the show…

The Port Moody Public Library is running Poetry Planet on Monday, January 18 from 7-9pm in the ParkLane room [map]. This open reading is a great opportunity to hear new poetry and share your own writing. No registration is required. For more information call 604.469.4575.

And remember, the rain may be dreary, but at least you don’t have to shovel it. 😉
