Popular author and historian Dr. Richard Mackie presents “Logging the Valley: A Century of Stories,” 7pm on Thursday, May 24th in the Courtenay and District Museum. Logging was the motor and engine of the Comox Valley economy between the 1860s and the 1960s. Practically everyone in the valley was drawn into it somehow, directly or indirectly. Richard Mackie will tap into a rich seam of stories — humourous, profound, and suggestive — of a century when the valley’s old growth forests sustained the communities of Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland, and Merville. In this talk, Mackie will present stories about logging in the Comox Valley drawn from his books The Wilderness Profound (1995), Island Timber (2000), and Mountain Timber (2009). Mackie is an award winning author who lives in Vancouver. He is currently the editor of the online journal The Ormsby Review. Admission to the evening is $5 per Historical Society member; $6 non-members (plus GST). Advance tickets are strongly recommended as the museum lecture series frequently sells out. The Courtenay and District Museum is located at 207 Fourth Street in downtown Courtenay. FMI: 250-334-0686 ext. 5.
