Ladysmith’s Pamela Anderson is about to make the short trek south to Victoria, where she’ll be signing copies of her new book at Mayfair Shopping Centre this March.
The actor, activist and once infamous Playboy Playmate will be at Indigo Mayfair on Monday, March 6, to sign copies of Love, Pamela, which “reclaims the narrative of her life in a memoir that defies expectation in both content and approach,” reads a synopsis from publisher HarperCollins.
Before its release, the book generated a huge waitlist locally, including at the Vancouver Island Regional Library where Nariel Davis, general manager of the Ladysmith branch, told CHEK News that 10 copies were on the way, with about 90 holds on those copies.
Love, Pamela was released on Jan. 31, the same day Anderson’s documentary, Pamela, a love story, premiered on Netflix. The latter gives viewers an inside look at her life, including never-before-seen archival footage and personal journals.
“It’s time to take back the narrative,” Anderson, 55, says in the trailer for the doc, which was filmed at her waterfront home in Ladysmith.
Amid its release, local residents tell CHEK News that they hope people will be kind to her in the wake of it, including store owner Klair Strom.
“We look at her as a person. She’s a mom, she’s generous, she’s an animal lover,” said Strom of Ladysmith Health Food Store, a regular shopping destination for Anderson.
The upcoming book signing starts at noon, though wristbands to access the event will be distributed at 8 a.m. at the store’s Douglas Street entrance, according to Indigo. It’s noted, however, that attendees must purchase a copy of the book in-store or show staff proof of purchase to receive a wristband.
It’s a signing event, meaning Anderson will only personalize copies of Love, Pamela, and no photography is permitted at the signing table, though photos can be taken in line.
