Thu MAY 25

The fourth son of a fourth wife. A celebrated Inuit artist who drowned to death. A Piikani woman known as Mary Jane. A settler wife we'll call Josie. In this talk, award-winning writer Natalie Appleton reads from and discusses four short works that explore the fantastical past of the Prairies and the untold lives of minorities. These stories--both creative non-fiction prose and poetry--are acts of journalism that aim to name these men and women, tell of their families and hopes before they fell, but also to ask the media, the public and the police what if? with a startling voice that steps out from behind the page.

Café Galt | Lecture | Adults & Seniors | Talk presented in partnership with the U of L COHT. Free admission with support from an anonymous donor.
