Hummingbird is an ink work on paper that I created in 2012 and will be sold for auction at the 18th Annual Springsong!

This prestigious event is a celebration of books and birds and is a fundraiser for The Heritage Centre with the help of Pelee Island Bird Observatory and Margaret Atwood. Past guest have included; Alice Munro, David Suzuki, Miriam Toews, and last year Madeleine Thien!

Margaret Atwood continues the tradition of bringing award-winning authors to our island where they are introduced by her at our traditionally sold-out banquet. This year is no exception and I am honoured to be part of this year’s weekend with guest author Steve Burrows, award-winning Canadian mystery writer, journalist, and a past recipient of a “Nature Writer of the Year” award from BBC Wildlife.

Burrows new book, A Dance of Cranes is the story of Lindy, Chief Inspector Domenic Jejeune who has returned from the U.K. to the news that his brother has gone missing in Canada’s Wood Buffalo National Park. But even if Jejeune can find his brother in the vast, remote wilderness, keeping them both alive afterwards might prove a far greater challenge. Across two continents, the lives of Domenic and Lindy are spiralling towards a similar fate. And there seems to be nothing anyone can do to help them.

To bid on this work in support of the Pelee Island Heritage Centre, grab your tickets to Springsong before they sell out!
