Don’t Never Tell Nobody Nothin’ No How

“Don’t Never Tell Nobody Nothin’ No How” is an illustrated lecture about West Coast rum running presented by maritime historian Rick James.

James will provide a new slant on the topic especially for this talk by focusing on the antics taking place off the coast of southern Vancouver Island as Canadian vessels delivered cargo to their thirsty US neighbours from 1920-1933.

Copies of Don’t Never Tell Nobody Nothin’ No How will be available for purchase and signing after the talk. This book was shortlisted for UBC’s 2019 Basil Stuart-Stubbs Book Prize for an outstanding scholarly book on British Columbia.

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. FMI: 250-334-0686 ext. 2.
