I regret having to postpone my trip to Yellowknife and Hay River, NWT last week, and my intended book signings at The Book Cellar and the Hay River Museum, but of course I so much more regret the terrible carnage inflicted on the people there (and Enterprise, Ft. Smith, and the Indigenous Communities along the way) due to the awful wildfires they are experiencing. Godspeed in their evacuation and rebuilding/recovery efforts
I did have a chance to deliver books to The Beehive Artisan Store in Nordegg, Alberta, and the Rocky Mountain House Museum, both worthy stops if you are on the David Thompson Highway in west central Alberta.
Neil will be at the Yellowknife Book Cellar to meet readers and sign copies of A Métis Man's Dream; From Traplines to Tugboats in Canada's North on Wednesday, August 16th from 12-1:30 pm and 4 to 5. (Fires permitting). Please stop by and say hello!
Neil will be in Hay River for the Hay River Friends reunion and will be hosting a book signing of the Gordon Gill and Hay River story, A Métis Man's Dream; From Traplines to Tugboats in Canada's North. Please stop by the Museum (the old Hay River Hotel "Zoo") on Saturday, August 19th, between 1:30 and 3:00 pm. Even if your copy is signed, come on by to say hello and get it personalized. I am hoping Gordon will be there too!
If you are participating in the Métis Nation AGM and Gathering at Métis Crossing August 10, 11 and 12, (or if you are going there for a mini holiday), please enjoy the history and setting; oh, and do check the gift shop for your own signed copy of A Métis Man's Dream; From Traplines to Tugboats in Canada's North!
