Every day around the world, heritage interpreters fearlessly work to connect people with places. Normally, their programs go off without a hitch, and become the stuff of legend. However, as in life, things don’t always go as planned. The Interpreter's Big Book of Disasters is a guide to teach you what others learned the hard way. These are the disaster stories that are shared around a campfire, passed down from grizzled veteran interpreters to fresh young recruits. They were never written down in training manuals… until now. The book is entirely the result of voluntary contributions from interpreters across Canada and beyond. The stories, illustrations, design and editing were all done by interpreters, free of charge, for the benefit of the interpretive community. It is the outcome of a whole community of interpreters coming together. You will laugh, cheer, and maybe even cry, but most of all you will learn how to save yourself from repeating the same mistakes.Biografía del autor:
