Yes! Tomorrow I’ll be at the Collector’s Show & Tell 1-2 pm at Cloverdale Branch Library in Surrey BC to show a fiew of my postcards and talk to people about collecting. There will be collectors of all kinds of neat things there 🙂

I see that the Library collection includes some books on postcard collecting  –  and even a few postcard mystery novels. This one for children, The Postcard by Tony Abbott (2008) looks as if ti involves both postcards and family history. I’ll have to read that one! (Listed as available at the Guildford Library Branch in Children’s Fiction, Call #:ABBOTT.)

And in the morning there’s a Genealogy Show & Tell from 10:30 to 12:30. That is always the most fun genealogy event of the year.

Come for both events!

Here is the link to Cloverdale’s event calendar.
