Hilary Grist will be reading from her new book and singing in Vancouver

Former Maple Ridge singer and songwriter Hilary Grist will be in Vancouver Saturday, June 6 to help launch her new book and CD, Tomorrow is a Chance to Start Over.

The event will be held at the Book Warehouse, located at 4118 Main St. in Vancouver starting at 2 p.m., with Grist both reading her new book and performing songs from the CD.

Grist not only wrote the music that accompanies the book, she helped create the artwork for the cover.

The story is about Ira and Isabelle, two siblings living in a little red house by the sea who decide to escape the sound of the city’s beeping cars and sail off to a far away land.

In addition to the narrated story, the CD offers nine original songs, as well as a rendition of Johanne Brahms’ classic Cradle Song.

The former Maple Ridge artist is a graduate of Capilano University and cites influences from Ella Fitzgerald to Tom Waits.

The book follow’s Grist’s fifth studio album, Come and Go.
