Event Details

Jean Wal­ton reads from Mud­flat Dream­ing: Water­front Bat­tles and the Squat­ters who Fought Them in 1970s Van­cou­ver (New Star Books, 2018). This book tells the sto­ry of hip­pie squat­ters on the North Shore of Van­cou­ver and work­ing class res­i­dents in Surrey’s river­side neigh­bor­hood of Bridgeview who came to feel like “squat­ters,” always on the verge of evic­tion. This read­ing will focus on sub­ur­ban land use on a volatile flood plain, wel­fare and youth pro­grams, NFB film activism, and Scrap­yard Art in Sur­rey of the 1970s.
