(Book Launch) John Bateman releases Salt Spring Has Issues. Bateman, son of the famed wildlife artist and long-time resident of Salt Spring Island has written a book about his alternative take on the beautiful, mysterious and seriously odd island which he calls home. In 2009, John started writing a monthly column in Salt Spring’s art, culture and entertainment guide, The Fishbowl magazine. John’s humorous observations and quirky and surprising writing style lays out daily life on the island. Whatever your perception of Canada’s enigmatic island may be, throw it out the window and get the, truth is funnier than fiction facts. Saltspringologist, John Bateman has been an island regular since 1985 and full time islander since 2001. His work has also been featured in the Gulf Island Driftwood.
