“Author and curator, Catherine Clement (left) has won B.C.’s top award for historical writing for her book about an early Vancouver photographer whose work was almost forgotten.” FULL STORY

From Winnie to Ollie

December 01st, 2016

Like many classics for young readers–Winnie the Pooh books, example–Paymaneh Ritchie’s My Name is Oliver, (Tellwell Publishing 2016 $6.99) was written by a parent to entertain their own child. Told from the perspective of a lovable but depressive six-year-old Beagel-Springer Spaniel who was adopted from the SPCA, this children’s book delves into mental health issues that include separation anxiety, allergies, anxiety and depression. Ritchie’s aim is to create a light-hearted story that will enable the reader to discuss tolerance, acceptance and unconditional love with children. A portion of the proceeds will go to the BC SPCA and the Beagle Freedom Project.

THIS BOOK WILL BE LAUNCHED AT:

Inlet Theatre in Port Moody. December 4th.
