Writer Eden Robinson to take up residence at Haig-Brown House this winter

Each winter a Canadian writer spends the winter months at the Haig-Brown House engaging in public programming with the writing community, and working on their writing.  This winter the Museum at Campbell River is thrilled to be welcoming Eden Robinson to Campbell River.  Robinson, who comes from Kitimaat, BC, is one of the most prominent Indigenous writers currently working in Canada. She has won multiple awards for her writing, including the Writer’s Trust Fellowship and the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize.  Most recently she has been working on her Trickster trilogy, with the first installment of the series having been shortlisted for the 2017 Giller Prize.

With the residency, the writer’s time is divided between their personal writing, and providing literary advice and support to the local community.  Final details of her programming plans will be established over the coming weeks, with most programming starting in January.

If you would like to meet Eden Robinson, there will be a welcoming reception at the Haig-Brown House on Sunday, December 1 from 1 to 3pm.  For more information you can go to www.haig-brown.bc.ca .
