Flitflee Fanderfoodle

Flitflee is a little nervous to try new things, do you think she will give it a go? Maybe if she takes a bravery breath?

Margy Reid, now residing in Milden, Saskatchewan, grew up on a farm near Denzil. Her experience with children started early. As well as helping out with younger siblings and doing a lot of babysitting throughout high school, the mother of four also ran a daycare out of her home for many years. Over the course of time, many stories and characters were invented to entertain the kids. Now that her four daughters are grown, she has found the time to begin putting them to paper.

Eric Paetkau, Maestro

Charles Richard-Hamelin, piano

An opening night of epic proportions. At the 2015 edition of the International Chopin Competition, Charles Richard Hamelin became the first Canadian to be named a Laureate at the famed competition. Since then, he has skyrocketed to stardom and now he brings his masterful and award-winning Chopin to the SSO. In our 86th Season, we celebrate the work of Canadian composers like Andrew Staniland, whose work Voyageur is the perfect fanfare to an exceptional season. Maestro Eric Paetkau will lead the SSO musicians through Beethoven’s seventh symphony, which audiences fell in love with all over again in the movie The King’s Speech.

Wendy McGrath

Wendy McGrath was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Her poetry and short fiction has been published in such publications as Descant, Poetry in Motion, and NeWest Review. Her previous novel, Recurring Fictions, was released through the University of Alberta Press in 2002. Santa Rosa, was published by NeWest Press in April 2011, and its followup, North East, arrived in October 2014. A Revision of Forward, was released in Fall 2015.

Louise Bernice Halfe

Burning in this Midnight Dream is the latest collection of poems by Louise Bernice Halfe. Many were written in response to the grim tide of emotions, memories, dreams and nightmares that arose in her as the Truth and Reconciliation Process unfolded. In heart-wrenching detail, Halfe recalls the damage done to her parents, her family, herself. She asks us to consider the damage done to children taken from their families, to families mourning their children; damage done to entire communities and to ancient cultures. Halfe's poetic voice soars in this incredibly moving collection as she digs deep to discover the root of her pain. Her images, created from the natural world, reveal the spiritual strength of her culture.

Rita Bouvier

Rita Bouvier's third collection of poetry is a response to the highs and lows of life and represents an attempt at restoring order through embracing others, reconciling the traumas caused by the deep scars of history, and soaring beyond life's awkward and painful moments in order to live joyfully. Inspired by the metaphor of a voyageur sustained by song on his journeys up and down the rivers of Northwest Saskatchewan, these "songs for the seasons" draw heavily on images from nature as well as the joys, heartaches and transgressions Bouvier has witnessed and experienced.

The Evolution of Fear

Claymore Straker is a fugitive with a price on his head. Wanted by the CIA for acts of terrorism he did not commit, his best friend has just been murdered and Rania, the woman he loves, has disappeared. As his pursuers close in, Clay follows Rania to Istanbul and then Cyprus, where he is drawn into a violent struggle between the Russian mafia, Greek Cypriot extremists, and Turkish developers cashing in on the tourism boom. As the island of love descends into chaos, and the horrific truth is unveiled, Clay must call on every ounce of skill to save Rania and end unimaginable destruction being wrought in the name of profit.

Canadian by birth, Paul E Hardisty eloped to Africa with a Prairie girl in the 1980's. Since then, he has lived and worked all over the world as an engineer and hydrologist. His first novel, The Abrupt Physics of Dying, set in Yemen during the 1994 civil war, was a London Telegraph 2015 Thriller of the Year, and was shortlisted for the prestigious CWA Creasy Dagger Award. The sequel, The Evolution of Fear, is set in Istanbul and Cyprus, where he lived and worked for almost a decade. Lee Child called it "a big, meaty thriller," and said: "Hardisty is a fine writer and Straker is a great lead character." Paul now lives in Western Australia with that same Prairie girl and their two sons, and leads Australia's national science program in water, land and biodiversity. He misses the hockey, and gets back to Canada as often as he can.
