Book launch at Touchstones â€” Journeys Taken: Selkirk College â€“ The First 50 Years
Selkirk College is celebrating its 50th anniversary by releasing a commemorative coffee table book.
Journeys Taken: Selkirk College – The First 50 Years chronicles the rich history of post-secondary education in the West Kootenay and Boundary regions. It is a beautiful volume and is a welcome addition to every bookshelf!
The college is offering the public to join it at Touchstones Nelson on Thursday, May 11 between 6:30-8 p.m. or at Mir Centre for Peace on Wednesday May 17 between 6:30-8 p.m. to celebrate the launch of the book which marks the close of our 50th year and the beginning of the next chapter.
The project team of History Instructor Takaia Larsen, Communications Coordinator Bob Hall and Graphics & Creative Coordinator Marian Lowe will be there to discuss the process and read a few passages. There will also be some special guests who helped make this project a success.
All proceeds from the sale of Journeys Taken will go towards the Selkirk College 50th Anniversary Legacy Fund that aims to raise $50,000 for student awards in the next 50 years!
We hope to see you there and look forward to spending some time celebrating Selkirk College’s first five decades of inspiring education!
