Creative Writing Reading Series Presents Ann Eriksson
Mar 22, 2017, 2:30pm-4pm
The daughter of a peripatetic Lutheran minister, Ann Eriksson spent her childhood exploring the natural and literary landscapes of the small prairie towns where she lived. As an adult, she migrated to the west coast where she raised a family and earned a degree in biology. A self-taught writer, she is the author of five novels: Decomposing Maggie, In the Hands of Anubis, Falling from Grace, which was awarded a silver medal in the 2011 Independent Publishers Book Awards, and High Clear Bell of Morning (Douglas & McIntyre, 2014). Her most recent, The Performance (Douglas & McIntyre, 2016), was described by Bibliobroads as “a beauty... an utterly compelling read” and by the Vancouver Sun as “revelatory.” Passionate about the environment, she is a founding director of the Thetis Island Nature Conservancy. She lives on Thetis Island, B.C. with her husband, poet Gary Geddes.
