David Stevenson is a professional forester who has been working in Canada’s boreal forests for 30 years.

Despite this interest in wood decay, David is married and has two daughters who ignore most of what he says, particularly where mushrooms are concerned.

On Wednesday September 27, David will be giving a presentation about boreal mushrooms with a focus on what not to put in your body. This will be followed up with a mushroom foray on Friday September 29 at Little Red Park (if interested the foray will begin from the Cosmo Lodge at 10:00 am rain or shine).

Thanks to Leavey's special relationship with Rex, she is able to help dozens of her fellow soldiers from extremely dangerous situations. Both Rex and Leavey serve successfully together on over 100 missions but then the unthinkable happens. When Leavey drives over a roadside bomb with Rex in the car, they have no other option than to fight for their lives together.

Category: Open Adult ProgramsNeal McLeod Book Launch - Neechie Hustle *This book launch has been postponed until further notice.*

Close

October 5, 2017

Based on characters from McLeod’s popular Crow Hop Café (2002 to 2004), Neechie Hustle begins with events on the fictitious Broken Elbow Reserve in Saskatchewan. The book takes a satirical look at the Indian Act and explores the emergence of neechie swagger in the late 1960s and 1970s. The rise of Pinokineechie, a wooden Indian, sees the expansion of Chief’s Fried Chicken, with Crees dancing at the fabled Studio 54 in New York City. The story is told in traditional Cree style with a modern twist, and includes dialogue in the Cree language. With a cast of colourful characters and brilliantly outrageous situations, Neechie Hustle will have readers in stitches as they root for the Senator and the Bannarchists to subdue Pinokineechie, preserve the secret bannock recipe, and bring balance back to the bannock force.

Neal McLeod is Cree (having grown up on the James Smith reserve in Saskatchewan) and Swedish. He received the 2015 Gabrielle Roy prize for literary theory and criticism for Indigenous Poetics in Canada (Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 2014). His first book of poetry, Songs to Kill a Wîhtikow (Hagios Press, 2005), was nominated for multiple Saskatchewan Book Awards in 2005 and won Poetry Book of the Year - Anskohk Aboriginal Literature Awards in 2006. Neal currently lives in Kinistino, Saskatchewan, where he is at work on his next books.
