Eden Robinson will be at the Tseshaht First Nation building on Wednesday

Tseshaht: Eden Robinson reads for NIC series

Celebrated B.C. author Eden Robinson at the Tseshaht First Nation Administration Building on Wednesday, March 20 at 7 p.m.

North Island College’s Write Here Readers Series presents celebrated B.C. author Eden Robinson at the Tseshaht First Nation Administration Building on Wednesday, March 20 at 7 p.m.

Robinson will read from a selection of her poetry and fiction writing.

From the moment Eden Robinson burst onto the literary scene, she established a reputation as an unflinching writer.  She is the author of Traplines, Monkey Beach, The Sasquatch at Home and Blood Sports.

Traplines was Robinson’s first book, a collection of dark and brutal short stories that feature a deadpan, gritty humour. The book was published in 1996 and won the UK’s Winifred Holtby prize.

Her debut novel Monkey Beach was nominated for the Giller Prize and, like much of her work, it is a frank, engrossing portrayal of contemporary life in Haisla territory.  Monkey Beach garnered unanimous appreciation from critics in the US, UK and Canada.  The Washington Post called it “artfully constructed,” the National Post deemed it “intricately patterned.”

Robinson grew up with her older brother and younger sister in Haisla territory near Kitamaat Village, where she still lives.

This event is free to attend and open to the community.  For more information on the Write Here series, please contact Beth Turner at 250-334-5000 ext. 4267.
