We are excited to have an islander from Atlantic Canada join us for next week’s festival. Newfoundlander Michael Crummey is a nationally respected poet and novelist who writes on themes of hard work, harsh climate, and ironic humour to describe the disappearing rural life in his province. His latest book, Sweetland, is both comic and sad and “is a deeply suspenseful story about one man’s struggles against the forces of nature and the ruins of memory.”
