2018 Conference Opening Reception, Humboldt

One Book One Province Returns March 2020

Posted by Em Ironstar on January 27th, 2020

One Book, One Province, (OBOP) Saskatchewan aims to increase literacy and to create a reading culture by providing opportunities for residents to become more socially engaged in their community through a shared story. Please join the Saskatchewan Library Association, Candace Savage, and Greystone Books in March 2020 as we read and discuss A Geography of Blood.

About A Geography of Blood...
When Candace Savage and her partner buy a house in the town of Eastend, she has no idea what awaits her. At first she enjoys exploring the area around their new home, including the boyhood haunts of the celebrated American writer Wallace Stegner, the backroads of the Cypress Hills, the dinosaur skeletons at the T.Rex Discovery Centre, the fossils to be found in the dust-dry hills. She also revels in her encounters with the wild inhabitants of this mysterious land. But as she explores further, she uncovers a darker reality—a story of cruelty and survival set in the still-recent past—and finds that she must reassess the story she grew up with as the daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter of prairie homesteaders.
