McAllister/Nikiforuk event: A Story With Two Ends
Friends of Wild Salmon and ForestEthics are proud to present this series of events, which showcase two well-known Canadian authors.
An award winning photographer and author, Ian McAllister works for the organization Pacific Wild and is one of Canada’s leading wilderness advocates. His first book, The Great Bear Rainforest won the Booksellers’ Choice Award for BC Book of the Year. His latest book is The Last Wild Wolves of the Great Bear Rainforest. McAllister is also a nature photographer and filmmaker and along with his wife, received Time Magazine’s “Hero for the Planet” award. Ian lives with his wife and their two children, Callum and Lucy on Denny Island, BC.
Andrew Nikiforuk’s work as a journalist – for such magazines as Saturday Night, Maclean’s, Canadian Business, Report on Business Magazine, Georgia Straight, and Equinox – has earned him four National Magazine Awards, the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy, and top honors from the Association of Canadian Journalists. His latest book, Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of a Continent reveals the true costs of America’s oil addiction.
