Born in Norway, Erling Friis-Baastad grew up in the United States, emigrated to Toronto in 1969, and moved to the Yukon in 1974. His earlier collection, The Exile House, was published by Ireland’s Salmon Publishing in 2001. His poems have appeared in a number of chapbooks as well as in many literary journals and anthologies, including The Malahat Review, Grain, Poetry Canada and Canadian Forum. A longtime book reviewer and journalist, he currently works as an editor with the Yukon News in Whitehorse.
Garry Thomas Morse is a direct descendant of the Assu Chiefs from the Quadra Island Kwakwaka’wakw (Kwakiutl) people). He will be reading from his new book Discovery Passages, a locally based book that “sets to recover the appropriated, stolen and scattered world of his ancestral people from Alert Bay to Quadra Island.”
