What are people in Chilliwack reading?
- The Book Man
- Owner: Amber Price
- Where: Chilliwack, B.C.
Each store (it has another branch in Abbotsford) features not only up to a quarter-million books, but also a cat. Owner Amber Price says the book that has been doing well is Chad Reimer’s Before We Lost the Lake: A Natural and Human History of Sumas Valley. “He’s a local author who has done a reading and event at our bookstore in the past, and we’re thrilled to see his newest offering enjoying so much success at both of our branches,” Price says. W. P. Kinsella is another of the store’s perennial bestsellers: “We hosted him for two separate readings at our Chilliwack branch, and he was a regular customer. He always signed all of his books that were on the shelves when he visited us.”
