Book Talk ‘Sensational Vancouver’ by Eve Lazarus at the Lynn Valley Library

Event Details

Lynn Valley Library

Eve Lazarus will give an illustrated presentation about her latest book Sensational Vancouver, a #1 BC bestseller. The book takes an untraditional approach to history and looks at everything from police corruption, high-end brothels and unsolved murders to ground breaking west coast architecture and legendary women such as North Vancouver’s Phyllis Munday and Valerie Jerome.

Eve Lazarus is a writer with an Aussie accent and a Vancouver address. I’ve worked in journalism and corporate communications for more than 20 years and my articles have appeared in dozens of newspapers and magazines including the Globe and Mail, Marketing Magazine, B.C. Business and Costco Connection.

Over the years I’ve written about everything from disappearing aboriginal languages to longshorewomen. I love everything about the writing process: the research, the interviewing, and putting the actual words down on paper. I covered the Stanley Cup riots for the Vancouver Sun, I’ve interviewed a company president while flying in his private jet, and I’ve written a story from up in a blimp.

These days I’m a recovering business reporter and feature writer, excited to be working with a great group of companies that includes Shaw Communications. I produce content that ranges from white papers on fibre connectivity and the cloud, to case studies and ghost writing.

My content writing helps support by blog and my book habit, and I’ve written three books on popular history. I’m passionate about heritage and history and I love giving talks on everything from built heritage to Vancouver’s first triple murder.
