2016 mentor Tony Penikett will launch his new book "Hunting the Northern Character" (UBC Press) in Montreal at 5:30 pm on Monday, October 23. Canadian politicians, like many of their circumpolar counterparts, brag about their country’s “Arctic identity” or “northern character,” but what do they mean, exactly? In this deeply personal account of modern developments in the Canadian North, Tony Penikett corrects confused and outdated notions of a region he became fascinated with as a child and for many years called home.

Advance copies available at the launch. Hardcover $35
