With Brian Murdoch

An exploration of the impact of that treasured childhood memory that was the foundation of a life-long love affair with books.

We will study together the stories related in memoirs of the beginnings of such a journey. One of the most often asked questions during our 20 years with an open shop was: ‘Can you help me find this book I remember as a child?”.  So, attendees should give some thought to identifying such a book or an author in their own lives, as some time will be given to sharing these treasures.

The course will be offered by Brian Murdoch, who has previously facilitated discussions for us on ‘The Importance of Books Apart from their Texts’, ‘Banned and Censored Books, and ‘The Art of the Dust Jacket’

About Brian Murdoch

Brian, and his wife, Ann, have been the owners of Murdoch’s Bookshoppe since 1993.  Since the close of their ‘bricks-and-mortar’ shop in 2013, the focus of their selection has been on out-of-print, rare and antiquarian books, primarily non-fiction. He has participated by invitation in all of the recent Vancouver Book Fairs, and sold books all over the word.  Both his father and his father-in-law were book dealers, so the love of books may be genetic in origin!
