Co-presented with ABSeries.org, and thanks to the Department of English Language and Literature at Carleton University, we are thrilled to have Eden Robinson, a Haisla/Heiltsuk author who grew up in Haisla, British Columbia, with us on the evening of March 4. Eden will do a reading of her 2 recent books: Blood Sports and Sasquatch at Home, followed by a conversation with Waubgeshig Rice, CBC's video journalist and author of 2 novels - Midnight Sweatlodge and Legacy.
Eden Robinson's first book, Traplines is a collection of short stories that won the Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize and was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year in 1998. Monkey Beach, her first novel, was shortlisted for both The Giller Prize and the Governor General’s Literary Award for fiction in 2000 and won the BC Book Prize’s Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize. Her most recent books are Blood Sports and Sasquatch at Home: Traditional Protocols & Modern Storytelling.
Her books will be available for sale.
