Book reading and presentation by Dave Bidini followed by a performance from Bidiniband.
Dave Bidini uses his stint as guest columnist at the Yellowknifer newspaper to explore the “Gateway to the North,” the meaning of community, and the issues facing residents and their daily lives. As a member of the legendary band the Rheostatics, Dave Bidini has had the great privilege of exploring Canada’s incredible geography from coast to coast to coast. Yet, in his many travels, he’d never visited the Northwest Territories. After an all-too-brief visit to a literary festival in Yellowknife, Bidini was hooked on the place and its people. From the time he returned home, all he could do was think about going back to the North. Midnight Light is Dave Bidini’s fast, funny and, at times, powerfully poignant chronicle of the incredible time he spent “up there” in the NWT.
