Global Edmonton came to the launch of McCauley Moments this afternoon and made a short segment for the evening news:
I was interviewed by the Edmonton Journal‘s Sheila Pratt today, and she came to the launch this afternoon. Here is her article:
At long last, McCauley Moments will be screened for the first time in public on Sunday, November 10, from 2-4 p.m. in room 4 at the Commonwealth Recreation Centre. There is a load of free parking, and the location is right along the LRT route. The event is free and we’ll even have refreshments from the Italian Centre!
Doors are at 2 p.m., followed by a welcome at 2:15 and then a screening of the film (approximately 35 minutes) at 2:30. The filmmaker will be in attendance, as well as representatives from McCauley Revitalization and The Works.
Here is the Facebook event for the launch – hope to see you there!
Last night, the book McCauley, Then & Now launched at Zocalo. The book is designed as a walking guide to the neighbourhood and includes the history of the area, many of its buildings, and stories from long-term current and former residents. The launch featured people from the committee that created the book speaking, reading, and making music. I was the Editor of the project, and spent the evening behind the camera filming the event. Here it is!
