Bright Blue: A Memoir

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.

This quote opens Bright Blue, a memoir by Jean Evanishen. A lively and witty look back on a life well-lived, Jean's memoir details her intellectual and creative path as she moves through childhood, marriage and motherhood, and a challenging career. She's approached retirement with equal gusto and tells of her adventures traveling, volunteering, and creating beautifully-crafted pottery at her home studio in Summerland, BC.

Liberally illustrated with photos as well as Jean's original cartoons, Bright Blue engages us with stories from a pre-technology and a post-COVID world. 

Jean is generously donating proceeds from the sale of Bright Blue to the Summerland Community Arts Council.
