Join us on May 12 as the Sidney & Peninsula Literary Festival Society and Tanner’s Books co-host their final Spring reading. Vancouver Island authors Jennifer Manuel and Amy Scoones will read from recent works.
Jennifer Manuel is a long-time activist in Aboriginal issues and has taught school in the lands of the Tahltan and Nuu-chah- nulth peoples. Her debut novel, The Heaviness of Things that Float, deftly explores the delicate dynamic between First Nations communities and non-native outsiders.
Anny Scoones tilled her life on a heritage farm in North Saanich, and in Victoria, to create several charming books. These include: Home, Home and Away, True Home, and Hometown. Her latest book, Last Dance in Shediac, is a memoir about her mother who was celebrated Canadian artist Molly Lamb Bobak.
