Jeremy Kroeker -- Speaking & Signing

Monday Jan 05 2015 7:00 pm - Grant Park in the Atrium, Winnipeg

Post a comment

Speaking & Signing Through Dust and Darkness: A Motorcycle Journey of Fear and Faith in the Middle East (Rocky Mountain Books).

Jeremy Kroeker is a Mennonite with a motorcycle. When his seemingly unflinching faith in a Christian worldview begins to shift, Kroeker hops on his bike to seek answers from another perspective. After shipping his ride to Europe, Kroeker discovers that the machine wobbles back and forth worse than his own opinions about spirituality. Still, he carries on, oscillating through Europe—Germany, Austria, Croatia, Albania—and into the Middle East - Turkey, Syria, Lebanon and, ultimately, Iran.

Jeremy Kroeker is a freelance writer, a speaker, and the award-winning author of Motorcycle Therapy: A Canadian Adventure in Central America. With his motorcycle, he has travelled to nearly 30 countries while managing to do at least one outrageously stupid thing in every one. His writing has appeared in newspapers such as the Toronto Star, Winnipeg Free Press and Calgary Herald, and in U.S. magazines such as Alpinist, and Outrider Journal. He was born in Manitoba, grew up in Saskatchewan and currently lives in Canmore, Alberta.

Launch of Revisiting English Grammar: A Guide for the Modern University Student.

Johnny Geddes calls Revisiting English Grammar “the University of Manitoba's very own grammar guide, much needed by students." He explains: "The students themselves played a significant part in its creation. Co-author Rosemarie Finlay’s and my brief: to produce an English grammar guide with the potential to improve students' skills and reduce frustration upon entering university. Two years’ testing our prototype upon volunteer students did the rest; they played a big part in optimising the design of our - and their - book.”

British writer John (Johnny) Geddes lived in Winnipeg from 1987 until 1997, gaining his B.A. from the University of Manitoba. His debut novel Souls of the Southern Stars appeared before he acquired his M.A. in Biography at Buckingham University. Geddes founded the composition-enhancement service 'The Text Vet' in 2004. While still in England, he saw two more books published before moving to Florida in 2011.

Rosemarie Finlay, a native German speaker, long domiciled in Canada, has devoted her professional life to introducing University students to German culture. In addition to her Studies of 20th and 19th Century writers, she has taken a special interest in German as a second language for English speakers. She is a Senior Instructor in the German and Slavic Studies Department at St. Paul’s College, University of Manitoba.
