Located in the plaza on the southeast corner of Kennedy and The BridleTrail. Ample parking.)

People’s Choice author Bruce Hunter will read from his novel, In the Bear’s House, a coming-of-age story about a deaf child sent to live in the wilderness of historic Kootenay Plains in Alberta.

Bruce’s work has appeared in thirty journals including Canadian Fiction Magazine, The Canadian Forum, Grain, NeWest Review, Poetry Canada Review, and has been broadcast on the CBC.

His poetry has been recognized via People’s Choice Awards and short-listed for CBC/ Saturday Night Literary Awards. Don’t miss your chance to hear from “one of the great chroniclers of Canada’s working people.” (London Free Press)
