Book Launch

Laurel Deedrick-Mayne will be presenting the re-release of her Great-Aunt’s bestselling memoir, newly titled, “When Days Are Long: Nurse in the North”.

“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

Please join her at Audreys Bookstore at 2pm on Sunday, September 22, 2019. Laurel will give a reading followed by a question & answer period. Refreshments will be served.

10702 Jasper Avenue Edmonton, AB, T5J 3J5 (780) 423-3487
