Gryphons Read: In Conversation With Author Eden Robinson

Wednesday, October 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

On Oct. 2, the Gryphons Read program hosts a conversation with Eden Robinson, author of Son of a Trickster, the 2019 Gryphons Read pick.

Faculty and staff can take part in an informal meet and greet with Eden Robinson Oct. 1 at 10 a.m. in the library’s Scholar’s Studio (Rm 289).

Son of a Trickster by Haisla and Heiltsuk First Nations novelist Eden Robinson is described as a “striking and precise coming-of-age novel in which everyday teen existence meets Indigenous beliefs, crazy family dynamics and cannibalistic river otters.” Robinson’s novel, the first in a forthcoming trilogy, was shortlisted for the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize and was a finalist for the 2018 BC Book Prize and Leacock Medal for Humour.

One Book. One Campus. One Community.

Gryphons Read is a campus-wide book club. It brings the University community together over a selected novel and encourages meaningful conversations about the book. In the fall, registered participants will have the opportunity to participate in facilitated conversations about Son of a Trickster and further explore the novel using a workbook developed at U of G. The workbook outlines ways readers can further connect with themes in the novel through related University initiatives.
