This month historical interpreter, researcher, event co-ordinator and tour guide Jolene Castillou Cumming is our featured story teller.  She will share intriguing local stories about E. Pauline Johnson Tekahionwake, who today still remains somewhat of an enigma.  You are encouraged to listen, sketch and bring your own stories and historic photographs of the West End to share with the community.


“Tales From the West End” is an evening to explore and experience our community through stories about our common past. The event is held at one of Vancouver’s intriguing historic buildings, formerly known as “Maxine’s Hideaway” and now home to a JJ Bean coffee shop.


Please note, we will be taking a short break in December, there will not be a Tales from the West End event in December.


The next Tales from the West End is expected to be the 3rd Tuesday in January at JJ Bean, save the date : Tuesday January 17th 2017, same time 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
