Mike will present 'Prairie and Beyond' during 'Thin Air' at the 2012 Winnipeg International Writers Festival. The Festival runs from September 21 - 29.
On Tuesday, September 25 from 12:15 - 12:45 PM, Mike will show images from his new book 'Prairie and Beyond', published by Turnstone Press. He will talk about the stories behind some of the photographs. The presentation takes place at the Carol Shields Auditorium of the Millennium Library in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Admission is free and Mike will also be available for signing books.
Mike will also be involved during the MAINSTAGE 'OH CANADA, OH PRAIRIE' that same evening on Tuesday, September 25 from 8- 10 PM at the Shaw Performing Arts Centre of the Manitoba Theater for Young People (at The Forks). Mike's images of 'Prairie and Beyond' will serve as background to the presentations of two acclaimed fiction-writers, David Bergen of Winnipeg, Manitoba (one of Canada’s most celebrated fiction writers) and Richard Ford from Boothbay, Maine (one of North America's most respected contemporary fiction writers). The evening includes readings from each of David's and Richard's new works situated firmly in the prairie. An on-stage chat will also follow. Admission for this event is $12.
