Julia Offen brought the Coastal View News along when she attended the American Anthropological Association conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. As treasurer for the Society for Humanistic Anthropology and an editor for the association’s journal Anthropology and Humanism, Offen spent most of her time in the convention center giving a writing workshop, presenting writing awards, hosting a mentoring session, exploring book exhibits, attending a board meeting and otherwise mixing with anthropologists and writers.

However, she did find a moment to be outside and documented it with CVN outside the Pan Pacific Vancouver. “It is so beautiful there,” Offen reported, “and a wee bit chilly!” She also noted that it’s “the same ocean, but a very different shore than we enjoy in Carpinteria—I could see the small seaplanes coming in to land one after another on the bay from my hotel window.”
