The latest edition of the award-winning Pearl magazine is on local shelves, delighting readers with a host of new features celebrating life here on the Saanich Peninsula.
From well-crafted columns by award-winning editor Susan Lundy and stunning photography by Lia Crowe to entertaining stories about Peninsula people and places, and engaging advertising from local businesses, this is the read you want to savour and enjoy.
Among the stories taking centerstage in this latest issue are:
- Art Full: Touring the art-rich Peninsula, by Hans Tammemagi, with photos by Don Denton, taking readers on a tour of some of the region’s public art masterpieces and numerous galleries.
- The Sound of Music, by Hans Tammemagi, exploring how in spite of COVID-19, the Mary Winspear Centre has welcomed live music – thanks to innovative thinking and meticulous planning.
- Fashion to Spare, by Lia Crowe, challenging readers to spice up their fashion game with wearable art by Brentwood Bay’s Gini Foley.
- Driving in Circles, by Bruce Cameron, sharing a series of spectacular circle tours around beautiful British Columbia – an inspiring solution to satisfy that urge to travel when international destinations are on hold.
The current issue continues Pearl’s celebrated approach to telling local stories.
Earlier this spring, Pearl earned B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Association kudos as British Columbia’s Best Special Publication (over 25,000 circulation) for a second straight year.
Emerging with another gold shows Pearl is hitting many of the high notes in delivering your community to you, says publisher Dale Naftel.
“Cover to cover, the quality of the magazine stands out. Readers love the engaging stories, amazing photography and discovering how our advertisers meet their needs,” Naftel says. “It’s a well-rounded package that captures the interest and imaginations of this diverse Peninsula community.”
