Author Reading: On Tuesday, November 12, 1pm and 7pm Laurel Deedrick-Mayne will be at the library to share her grand-aunt’s recently republished book When Days Are Long -- Nurse in the North. The book is a “compelling read about the fierce experience of life as a nurse in 1950s Yukon. But more than that, this story is an example of what it means to be an ally to Indigenous people: Amy Wilson listened, learned, and served the people of the North with heart, humility, and respect. At every turn she valued traditional ways without question and for that alone, Wilson’s vividly told story serves as a guide for us all.”--Jennifer Manuel, award-winning author of The Heaviness of Things That Float. Originally published as No Man Stands Alone in 1965 by Gray’s Publishing LTD., this new edition, When Days Are Long: Nurse in the North, includes an introduction by Wilson’s grandniece, Laurel Deedrick-Mayne, which brings crucial insights to this important figure in BC’s history. Books will be available for purchase at the reception.
