Join Maureen Brownlee as she reads from her new novel Cambium Blue and chats with Deryn Collier about the writing process, May 4th at 7 pm at Nelson Library.

Set in the British Columbia Interior, the novel Cambium Blue is an homage to resource towns, independent women and local newspapers. Rich with unforgettable characters and set in the Interior hinterland of British Columbia, Cambium Blue is a masterful and compassionate illumination of the human politics of a small town, and the intersection of individual lives with political agendas and environmental catastrophes.

“Maureen Brownlee is a vital and important voice in British Columbia fiction, capturing a way of life under-represented in our country’s literature. Cambium Blue vibrates with violence and sings with beauty. This story, these characters, this environmental and political discussion – all so crucially important today, right now. Read it.” –Angie Abdou, author of The Bone Cage, In Case I Go and This One Wild Life: a Mother-Daughter Wilderness Memoir.
