An Evening with Eden Robinson

The Gryphons Read organizing committee invites you to an evening with author Eden Robinson. Her book, Son of a Trickster, was this year’s pick for the Gryphons Read program, the University of Guelph’s common reading project. Join us in the library for an evening of lively conversation! This is a public event – all are welcome.

Lawrence Hill, Professor, School of English and Theatre Studies and chair of the Gryphons Read organizing committee says he is, “so thrilled that in October 2019, Haisla/Heiltsuk novelist Eden Robinson has agreed to come to campus for two days of visits and conversations about her fabulous, utterly memorable novel Son of a Trickster!”

Gryphons Read is a collaboration between the College of Arts, the Office of the Provost, and the Library, with major programming co-ordination from Student Experience. Each September, hundreds of students, faculty, and staff, participate in facilitated book clubs to read and discuss a book together, culminating into a campus visit from the author in early Fall. 2019 marks the 3rd year of the Gryphons Read program.
