In 2016, British Columbia lost two venerable booksellers, Jim Munro of Munro Books and Mel Bolen of Bolen Books. To honour their memory, the Western Book Reps Association is donating $500 to a charity of each store’s choosing.
The WBRP is hoping well-wishers will match its contribution. To donate, contact Jennifer Fyffe at (778) 847-3511 or email@example.com.
The donations will be presented at the WBRP’s book fair on Feb. 12.
