What an utterly charming man ... and he told me he will be reading our book tonight!
I told him that three BC authors (including me) contributed stories and that the book's debut launch was in Vancouver. He seemed pleased at BC's representation. There was so much more I wanted to say to him but a whack of people were (understandably) waiting for a photo-op.
For mine, he had me "snuggle in" (ooh my... be still my heart, he is *very* fit!) ... As with the previous time I'd met Premier Campbell, I was completely charmed and overwhelmed by his warmth and sincerity. What an exciting experience, and what a point of pride to present this book to the Premier of my province!
