PORT HARDY—North Island College’s Write Here Readers Series returns to Port Hardy next week with an evening with George Littlechild at Cafe Guido.

The event is free and all are welcome to attend.

Littlechild was born in Alberta, the son of a Plains Cree mother and a Celtic father, and was raised by foster parents in Edmonton. He has exhibited in galleries around the world and his art is in several important collections. Many of his paintings are inspired by the Cree concept of Wahkomkanak, which means “our ancestors.”

In addition to his artwork, he has also written and illustrated several children’s books, including This Land is My Land, which won the Jane Addams Children’s Book Award. His most recent book is The Spirit Giggles Within. He lives in Courtenay, B.C.

For more information about George Littlechild’s reading or NIC’s Write Here Readers Series, contact Susan Auchterlonie at 250-334-5271.
