April 3, 2019

When you're a police officer assigned to dispatch duty, your work life can seem interminably boring. Such is the case for Asger, an officer who does not work in the field. Instead, he is attending to others' emergencies all day. Routing calls where they need to go, he is excellent at what he does-until he receives a call that confounds and terrifies him. A woman has been kidnapped-and suddenly this first responder's evening descends into madness. He quickly realizes that time is against him-and that there are some who may not want him to help.

Category: Open Adult ProgramsByrna Barclay and Brenda Niskala Author Reading

Close

April 15, 2019

Byrna Barclay – Like the explosive meeting of the North and South Saskatchewan rivers, the sequel to House of the White Elephant, which won Best Fiction in the 2016 Inaugural Whistler/Tidewater Awards, merges with the saga of the Livelong Quartet in Byrna Barclay’s eleventh novel, Second Cousin Once Removed. Far more than a coming-of-age story or a prairie romance, Second Cousin Once Removed picks up on the prejudices exposed in House of the White Elephant by revealing contemporary cross-cultural tensions within one family and ultimately what it means to be Canadian.

Beginning with winning the Saskatchewan Culture and Youth First Novel Award for Summer of the Hungry Pup, Barclay has won many literary and volunteer awards, culminating in her province’s highest honour, the Saskatchewan Order of Merit. She may be reached at byrnabarclay@sasktel.com.

Brenda Niskala grew up near a small Finnish settlement in west central Saskatchewan called Rock Point. Her recent books include poetry: How to Be River (Wild Sage Press); and fiction: Of All the Ways to Die (Quattro), and For the Love of Strangers (Coteau Books). In Prince Albert she will be reading from her novel in progress,an historical adventure which takes place in northern Europe (yes, there are Finns. and there are Vikings!) in 1065. An excerpt from the novel appears in the recent Thistledown anthology Wanderlust.

Enjoy a relaxing evening listening to readings from these Saskatchewan authors! Books for sale. All welcome!

Charlotte was supposed to be looking after the children, and she swears she was.

But while her three kids are all safe and sound at the school fair, Alice, her best friend Harriet’s daughter, is nowhere to be found. Frantically searching everywhere, Charlotte knows she must find the courage to tell Harriet that her beloved only child is missing—and admit that she’s solely to blame.

Harriet, devastated by this unbearable loss, can no longer bring herself to speak to Charlotte again, much less trust her. Now, more isolated than ever and struggling to keep her marriage afloat, Harriet believes nothing and no one.

But as the police bear down on both women, trying to piece together the puzzle of what happened to this little girl, dark secrets begin to surface—and Harriet discovers that trusting Charlotte again may be the only thing that will reunite her with her daughter.

Category: Open Adult ProgramsExplore Lifelong Learning - An Archaeological Perspective on Saskatchewan History presented by Margaret Kennedy

Close

April 30, 2019

Historical Archaeology explores the stories and lives of past people since the time of European contact using material culture, historical and other documents and ethnohistory. Dr. Kennedy will give an illustrated survey of the various kinds of historical archaeology done in Saskatchewan over the past century and the rich stories of the province’s past that have emerged from that important work. We will look, for example, at the archaeology of the fur trade, Indigenous and Métis sites, early settlement and homestead sites, industrial sites and other sites representative of the past 250 or so years of Saskatchewan history.

Margaret Kennedy recently retired from teaching Archaeology in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Saskatchewan but continues to be active in the archaeology of the northern plains. She now holds an Adjunct Professor position with the Department, keeping up her involvement with graduate student supervision and research there. Her specializations in Historical Archaeology over the past 43 years include the archaeology and history of the buffalo robe (“whiskey”) trade, the mining towns and industries of the Crowsnest Pass, buffalo hunting Métis winter camps, early homestead sites and urban archaeological sites. She also has experience in pre-contact archaeology and for the past seven years has been studying the rich ceremonial stone feature landscape of the Forks of the Red Deer and South Saskatchewan rivers with colleague Dr. Brian Reeves.

Everyone welcome!
