- Water Proof

To what lengths will a man go to recover evidence of his affair with his wife’s best friend? A dark, rousing comedy set in and around the Pacific Northwest, playwright and author Aaron Bushkowsky’s new novel is a story about infidelity, film-making, and the search for a missing kayaker.

With the bucolic settings, odd ball characters, and bizarre twists that seem entirely real, Water Proof will make you laugh and care, and then sad when it's all over…” 

AARON BUSHKOWSKY is a Vancouver author, poet, playwright, and screenplay writer. His first novel, Curtains for Roy, was shortlisted for the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour. He teaches playwriting and filmwriting at Langara College, Studio 58, Kwantlen University, and at the Vancouver Film School. 

JEFFREY GROBERMAN - Grobetrotting: Travel the World Laugh by Laugh

Grobetrotting is less a book about travel than a book about travel attitude. It focuses on how one person—who could easily be any of us—faces the aggravating, unpredictable and sometimes frightening aspects of travel. Jeff stands them on their heads and laughs about them. His narrative takes a wide detour around mean-spiritedness and moves the stories forward with edgy wit and just the right amount of self-deprecating humor.

JEFF GROBERMAN is a writer and producer whose quick wit and insightful observations have entertained legions of readers along with radio and TV audiences over a distinguished-yet-hilarious career. Jeff went on to produce shows for CBC, PBS, CTV, FOX, Global and Knowledge Network and in 2019 was inducted into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame.
