Dipnetting with Dad launches at CRD Williams Lake Library 

Williams Lake, BC – The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) announced today that local First Nations author Willie Sellars and illustrator Kevin Easthope will be launching and reading their new children’s book, Dipnetting with Dad, at its Williams Lake Library on Saturday, Sept. 20,  at 10:30 a.m. 

Set in the striking landscape of the Cariboo Chilcotin region, Dipnetting with Dad is a story of a father teaching his son the Secwepemc method of fishing known as dipnetting. Together they visit the sweat lodge, mend the nets, select the best fishing spot, and catch and pack their fish through rugged bush to the family home for traditional preparation. 

First-time author and Williams Lake Indian Band Council member Willie Sellars captures a sense of family values, and articulates the importance of storytelling, community living and coming of age in one of BC’s oldest cultures. The contemporary, colourful and dynamic illustrations of debut artist Kevin Easthope truly bring the characters to life. 

The book launch will feature storytelling by Willie Sellars and Kevin Easthope, and books will be available for purchase and signing. 

The entire family is welcome to attend this free event. The CRD’s Williams Lake Library is located at Suite A, 180 N. Third Avenue. Further information is available by emailing wlake@cariboord.bc.ca or calling 250-392-3630.
