Welcome to Tyee’s reader poll.

Do You Have a Special Story to Share from Your Own Backyard?

The Tyee’s new book celebrating our 20th anniversary is now out in the world.

Points of Interest is an anthology of 30 compelling stories that explore and expound on various corners of B.C., co-edited by Tyee senior editor andrea bennett and founding editor David Beers. Each of the essays in the book illuminate the people and places that make this province an exciting place to be.

Come with Tyee staffers and contributors for the literary road-trip of a lifetime, from hanging among seagulls and raptors in the contested airspace above Granville Island, to finding salvation in the abundant Haíłzaqv gardens in the community of Bella Bella, to witnessing a historic windstorm on Saturna. Buy the book now from Greystone Books or your favourite bookstore.

We know there’s so many more stories beyond B.C. just waiting to be told, too, from Alberta to Ontario and beyond. With this in mind, we want to ask:

Do you have a special story to share from your own backyard?

If you’d like to send us a longer response to potentially be featured in a future Tyee story, email us.
