Margaret Reynolds presented the Bill Duthie Booksellers Choice Award to publisher Howard White and author Tom Henry for Westcoasters: Boats that Built B.C. (Harbour).
HENRY: “When I first started I thought that because the writer’s name went on the book he was the main player. But it’s really a team effort. There’s Howard White, Mary White, Marisa Alps, Peter Robson, Lorna Jackson, Lorna Jackson, Lorna Jackson.... There’s a little wee me at the end. It would go nowhere without everybody else.”
