In celebration of the Full Moon and Aboriginal Awareness Week on the University of Calgary campus, Richard Van Camp, proud member of the Dogrib Nation, storyteller extraordinaire, and the North’s most accomplished literary figure, will share stories and gossip of the North from his many award-winning tales. Van Camp is author of a host of short stories, children’s books, baby books, radio plays, short films, and illustrated comics. Recently named ‘Northerner of the Year’ by Up Here Magazine, Van Camp is also CBC Radio’s Writer-in-Residence for North by Northwest. His first novel, The Lesser Blessed, a coming of age novel of First Nations teens in a NWT town, is currently being made into a movie cast with Hollywood stars.

Richard Van Camp, current Writer-in-Residence at the University of Alberta, comes to Calgary courtesy of the exchange program between the Calgary Distinguished Writers Program and the Department of English at the U of A. Each year, these institutions host the other school’s writer-in-residence for free public events.
