Jane Urquhart, one of Canada’s most distinguished novelists, will read at the Arts Centre on August 10th. Her reading will be the centrepiece of the Sunshine Coast Arts Council’s celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial. Urquhart wrote A Number of Things, stories of Canada’s history told through fifty objects, expressly for the nation’s 150th birthday, and the Arts Council has developed an exhibit of original works by 50 Coast artists inspired by those objects to accompany her reading.
In A Number of Things, Urquhart wakens the historical resonances of her chosen objects, ranging from a canoe to a Sikh RCMP turban, with the sensibilities and imagination of a novelist who has a deep sense of the past as it inhabits the present.
Come and enjoy this very special literary evening at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre, Trail and Medusa (doors open at 7:30). There will be refreshments, including a cash bar, and an extended intermission for book buying and signing and for viewing the unique exhibit.
