Gary  Doi: In the Moment

Twenty-six writers contributed to Gary Doi’s fourth anthology, In the Moment.  Their stories are deeply personal and insightful, probing the eternal question:  What gives a person hope?  One of the featured authors, Ivan McLelland, recounts the unlikely journey that led the Penticton Vees to win the International Ice Hockey Championships in 1955.  Both Gary and Ivan will share their experiences at Topics & Tea, and the book will be available for purchase, with all proceeds going to the Children’s Wish Foundation.

Gary Doi was one of the longest serving School Superintendents in BC, which included 3 school districts  (Kimberley, Vancouver Island North & Penticton). Previous to that, he was a teacher, consultant, school administrator and university lecturer. In retirement, Gary created the “Inspiring Hope Book Series” as a way of spreading hope and raising funds for charity. “In the Moment” is his fourth and latest release.
