Meet Mike McCardell and Help Raise Funds for Variety - The Children's Charity


Posted: Saturday, November 19, 2011 at 11:54am

 

Meet renowned news reporter and author Mike McCardell at a series of book signings for his new book, Here’s Mike: And Junkyard Granny, Whistling Bernie Smith, the Robertson Screwdriver, Pancakes and Eternal Truth. At the same time you can help raise money for Variety—The Children’s Charity.

Between October 19, 2011 and February 29, 2012, partial proceeds from each sale of Here’s Mike will be donated to Variety—The Children’s Charity. Global BC and Harbour Publishing have joined forces to support the fundraising drive. McCardell’s previous six books have raised over $75,000 for Variety.

By noticing the little things and not the big things, Mike McCardell shows us that everyone has a story to tell—his humour and his eye for the human condition have made him a wizard at finding the magic moments in everyday life. In Here’s Mike, he looks for things you don’t see on a tourist map, shares a super new unbelievable recipe for pancakes, talks about worms and scooters, and delves into Vancouver history.

Starting with his first signing in New Westminster on November 19, Mike will also be appearing in Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Abbotsford, Chilliwack and South Surrey/White Rock! For more information about the events, please visit Mike’s author page or see our Events Calendar!
