ALEXANDRA MORTON in conversation with Gail JohnsonSee more

Join us on April 12, 2021, at 9:00 pm for the exclusive interview with Alexandra Morton. Books can be purchased online, by email, or over the phone. If we don't have the book in stock, you can still participate by ordering a copy. 

“This book is not just about salmon. Or whether you even like or care about salmon. This is a story of a fight to keep part of this Earth alive. And it will break your heart and fill you with RAGE. It is about our country. Our (unforgivable) provincial and federal governments. Our environment and ecosystem. Our survival, our stewardship and what we are leaving our children.”

(If you already purchased the book, please watch your email - and check your spam folder - for the registration link.)
