It was a bit of table-turning for story-teller Corky Williams Wednesday at the book-signing of Sage Birchwater’s Corky Williams: Cowboy Poet of the Cariboo Chilcotin when Corky’s old friend Don “Woody” Woodward stopped by looking for a visit with his old comrade. Woody is a resident of West Quesnel and he made his way to the bookstore via the bridge in his electric scooter. He is one of the most colourful characters in the Blackwater/AnahimLake/Nazko area so it was quite a reunion. Woody agreed to sign his photo in the book for one lucky customer.
