Submitted by the Haida Gwaii Arts Council–BC-based writer Leslie Hall PInder will read from her book Bring Me One of Everything, a novel which weaves facts and fiction into an tale of suspense and intrigue. Alicia Purcell is compelled to find out why a prominent anthropologist killed himself at the height of his career. What she discovers changes her world. Local audiences may recognize the anthropologist as one of the team who came to Haida Gwaii in the 1950s to “save” the totem poles on SGang Gwaay.Leslie Hall Pinder left university with a plan to become a writer. But a fascination with the law led to a different career as in-house counsel for the Union of BC Indian Chiefs. Her writing took a backseat to her law firm, Mandell Pinder & Ostrove, but even still she wrote two well-received books, Under the House and On Double Tracks (nominated for a Governor-General’s award). In 2005, she went back to writing and now melds her background in law into her novels.Her readings are on Friday, March 28 at the Dixon Entrance Museum at 7 pm and on Saturday, March 29 at the Haida Gwaii Museum at 1pm.
