April 2014: New Books
Ali Graham's book, 'Life is What happens' is selling very well-Ali grew up in the Chase/Shuswap area and her book chronicles her life and the area very well.
Just recently, Joyce Dunn's book 'A Town Called Chase' was brought into the store and is a very complete history of Chase, BC.
And, Joanne Prigmore and has brought in her newest Photograph book: 'Seeing Is Believing-Backroads & Beyond'--all of the Shuswap area covering trails; lakes and waterfalls--showcasing what a beautiful area we live in.
We have 'Book themed' jewelery-keep on a key chain, or put on a necklace, earrings, and so on for an unique gift for book lovers. See under Local Artist section.
