Emily Carr was born in Victoria’s James Bay neighbourhood in 1871 and died there in 1945. Her childhood years and most of her adult life were spent in an area spanning a few blocks in that district. Based mainly on Emily’s own words in The Book of Small and her other autobiographical works, John Adams will bring to life the places, people and events that featured in Emily’s world. The talk will be illustrated with many archival and contemporary pictures of Emily’s James Bay.
