Author Reading – Dorris Heffron
City Wolves, by Dorris Heffron, is a fictional account of the life of Meg Wilkinson, Canada’s first female veterinarian.
This engaging tale takes Meg from her conservative life in Nova Scotia to the much faster paced, liberal environment of boomtown Dawson City, circa 1890. As Meg faces her many unexpected challenges, the reader gets to go along for the ride, experiencing the landscape (including Halifax) and enjoying the many quirky and compelling characters. The reader also gains insight into the complexity of the man/wolf relationship, possibly revealing as many similarities as differences.
Ms. Heffron will be reading at the Keshen Goodman Public Library, Wednesday November 4th, 2009. 7:00 p.m.
All are Welcome.
“Brimming with colourful characters, drama, humour, and rich historical detail, City Wolves is lively, insightful historical fiction that brilliantly reveals the wolf-like nature of humans and the human nature of wolves.” publisher
