M. A. Wilson, author of the popular children’s mystery series Maple Harbour Adventures, will be in Powell River for a reading and book signing on Saturday, January 13. This is his first trip back to Powell River since last February, when he gave readings at four local elementary schools.
M. A. Wilson lives in Gibsons and sets his books on the BC Coast. The first book in the series, Adventure on Whalebone Island, was shortlisted for the BC Reader’s Choice Children’s Book Award. His second book, The Mystery of the Missing Mask, was just released in November. Children aged eight to twelve will love these classic tales of adventure that recall an earlier era of outdoor fun, leisure, and independence. The Maple Harbour Adventure books celebrate the childhood joys of exciting outdoor exploits away from technology and the watchful eyes of parents. Filled with striking illustrations, they are already a favorite of children, parents, and teachers alike.
M. A. Wilson will be reading and signing books from 12 – 2 pm at Coles Books in the Powell River Town Centre Mall.
