Book launch: Michael Kluckner's "Julia" – May 15


A novelist, journalist, socialite, botanist, explorer, and World War I ambulance driver, Julia Henshaw was a unique and colourful personality.
This graphic biography follows her extraordinary life from Montreal to Vancouver, from the Rocky Mountains to England, and from the mining towns of BC’s Kootenays to the battlefields of France and Belgium. Her strongly-expressed views of women’s roles and voting rights, of racial and class issues, and of Canada’s relationship to Great Britain and the United States are illuminating contrasts to the values of her contemporaries, and with society today.
