Edmonton author Robert Feagan was scheduled to launch the re-release of his young-adult mystery, Mystery at Shildii Rock, at Audreys Books at the end of March. Obviously, as public gatherings of more than 15 people aren’t allowed in Alberta at the moment, the launch event had to be cancelled.
Avenue is looking to connect with various members of the community and “Support Local” during the COVID-19 pandemic, so we asked Robert to join us for a quick chat, where he could talk a little more about the book and how it was influenced by his time in the north. Robert has his own podcast, Arctic Canada — The Culture Cure, so there’s a plug for that, too.
