Stephen Legault, Author | The photo-essay book Where Rivers Meet: Photographs and Stories from the Bow Valley and Kananaskis (2019), edited by Legault, will be the featured book for the Canmore Museum’s online book club this December. Stephen has been writing since 1988, and for nearly as long has been leading national and international conservation programs and organizations. He recently served as program director for the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y). His next photo-essay book, The Waters Within: Photographs and Stories from Waterton Lakes and the Castle Wildland will be released in 2021.
Angie Abdou, Host | Chatelaine magazine named Angie’s most recent novel, In Case I Go, one of the most-riveting mysteries of 2017, and The Vancouver Sun called it a “spectacularly successful” novel. It was a finalist for the Banff Mountain Book Award, in the fiction and poetry category.
With her seventh book, Abdou turns her attention to nonfiction. Home Ice: Reflections of a Reluctant Hockey Mom chronicles the year in the life of a busy sport family. A starred review in Booklist calls Home Ice a first-rate memoir, a fine example of narrative nonfiction, and a must-read for parents with youngsters in organized sport.
Angie is an Associate Professor of Creative Writing at Athabasca University.
