Three things to do this weekend (Nov. 21 to 23)

Three things to do this weekend (Nov. 21 to 23)

1 Best-selling author and CTV broadcaster Mike McCardell will be signing books at South Surrey’s Black Bond Books Warehouse in support of his latest release, Cardboard Ocean. The popular Vancouver reporter (via New York), known for his "stories with a heart," turns a new page and finally reveals his own hardknock childhood in Brooklyn in this bittersweet memoir. McCardell will be at Black Bond Books (#1-15562 24th Ave.) at 1:30 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 22). For details, call 604-536-4444.

2 Do you ever miss elementary school for its "show and tell" days? Well, Surrey Libraries’ Cloverdale branch is encouraging everyone to do just that this weekend. The library is hosting its annual Family History Show Tell Saturday (Nov. 22) from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This year, bring your digitized home movies, photo slides or any other special family artifacts that tell a story. To register for the free event, call 604-598-7327, or email familyhistory@surrey.ca.

3 It’s never too early to visit Santa, and he’s already set up at Guildford Town Centre! Santa’s Winter Wonderland kicked off Nov. 15 and is here to stay until Dec. 23, at 10355 152 St., Surrey. On Friday (Nov. 21), the jolly ol’ elf arrives at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre at 6 p.m., with magician Ray Medway on hand to help make him appear – with the assistance of magic glasses-wearing kids, of course.
