Readings by the Salish Sea presents:
Graham E. Fuller
Writer, Novelist, and International Affairs Analyst will join us from Squamish, BC to read from his latest book, BEAR.
Although Bear primarily takes place in B.C, the themes explored are not unique to Canada; they are relevant to most current environmental activism and confrontation taking place in the US, most recently involving First Nations in the Pacific Northwest and Standing Rock in North Dakota. The parallels between Canadian resistance and the US environmental resistance movements are striking; environmentalists on both sides of the border have worked in tandem to stop this further proliferation of dirty oil and the spills already taking place around it.
Indeed states south of North Dakota such as Nebraska have been engaged in a struggle against the pipeline in an age when we should be phasing out such polluting fossil fuels.
“The themes of BEAR go beyond mere concern for the environment but invoke the universal image of bears as symbol of ancient wisdom and justice.”
