Nanaimo Harbour Front Library
Author reading and book signing
Join author Kim Goldberg for the re-launch of her 1991 book chronicling the work of historic local peace group The Nanoose Conversion Campaign.
She'll be reading and signing books with all proceeds going to WILPF (Women's International League for Peace and Freedom).
The NCC occupied a peace camp of tipis and later a peace house on the shores of Nanoose Bay in the 1980s. Through their creative direct actions and campaigning, the group drew public attention to the US nuclear-powered and nuclear weapons-capable warships that were using the underwater weapons testing range at Nanoose and travelling through our local waters. Former members of the Nanoose Conversion Campaign will be in attendance. This will be a very relevant afternoon, given Canada’s refusal in September to sign and ratify The UN Treaty on Nuclear Weapons Prohibition.
Come celebrate the work of local peace activists past and present. Everyone welcome. Bring your friends! Free admission. Light refreshments available.
For further information, call 250-753-3015.
For those not in Nanaimo, the book is available from Harbour Publishing: http://www.harbourpublishing.com/title/SubmarineDeadAhead
