B.C. broadcaster and best-selling author Mike McCardell pays a visit to Black Bond Books in Ladner this Saturday.
The CTV news personality will be on hand for a book signing for Shoelaces Are Hard: And Other Thoughtful Scribbles at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 24.
Until Dec. 31, partial proceeds from each copy of Shoelaces Are Hard will be donated to the BC Women’s Hospital newborn intensive care unit to support the miraculous and lifesaving work it does every day.
McCardell’s instinct for finding the perfect story at just the right time has led him to a lifetime of great scoops and gripping tales as an author and Vancouver news icon.
Years of chasing and reporting human-interest stories have honed his ability to see the deeper meaning behind the everyday, and to capture the universal and familiar in even the strangest and most outlandish events.
With this open-hearted approach, McCardell has become a master of weaving stories that are uplifting, compassionate and full of his signature brand of humour.
In Shoelaces Are Hard, McCardell takes on such diverse subjects as four-year-old tobogganists, incarcerated snowmen, 105-year-old tai chi masters and the meaning of life. Although his stories tackle hardships of all kinds, McCardell reminds us that, as with learning to tie our shoelaces, much can be accomplished with a little help and a lot of perseverance.
Black Bond Books is in Trenant Park Square. For more information about the event, call 604-946-6677.
