The good times keep rolling here at the Museum, and we are pleased as punch to announce our next special event:
Aaron Chapman will be gracing us with his presence on December 13th to give us – and you – the inside scoop on the writing of his latest book Liquor Lust and the Law, the story of Vancouver’s Legendary Penthouse Nightclub.
It’s hard to know where to start with explaining the awesomeness that is Aaron Chapman. A musician, a writer, a historian, Aaron has an uncanny ability to unearth Vancouver’s juiciest stories.
Personally, I started noticing that Aaron’s idea of “interesting history” was very much in line with my own when he wrote this article (published by VanCourier) on the history of Vancouver’s gangs.
His most recent foray into Vancouver’s shady side takes the form of his newly published book, and it’s been getting some great press coverage. Check out some of these articles:
So seize this unique opportunity and come on down to the Museum for Aaron Chapman’s book reading and signing on Thursday! He’ll be telling more than he wrote on the history of Vancouver’s favorite peeler bar, painting a colourful history of vice squads, raids, steaks (steaks?!), judges, and mobsters at the book reading. Admission is free and includes a looky-loo at the Museum.
I don’t want to say that there won’t be any strippers, but there won’t be any strippers. Sorry boys.
