Event description

Description

Wayne Johnston’s new book, First Snow, Last Light is a powerful and mysterious story that explores the forces that compel people to act in ways that surprise and terrify. Presenting with Johnston is Ken McGoogan, who worked as a journalist for two decades before focusing on book-writing. His novel, Dead Reckoning takes readers on a journey through Arctic history and the Indigenous voices that made it possible to discover it.
