Join Aliette Frank at the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre in beautiful North Vancouver for the launch of her latest publication, Dreams, Guns, & Gorillas.
This powerful memoir is the story of an 18 year old girl’s experience studying mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda before the massacre of 1999. It is about her struggle to survive starvation, rape, and abandonment in the jungle, the human and ecological challenges the mountain gorillas face, and her dreamtime connection to the mountain gorillas, which in the end saves her. Through her story, it becomes clear that the sustainability of the gorillas and the fate of the local human population are inextricably intertwined.
As well as a reading, this event will integrate a presentation of Aliette’s artwork and will feature an introduction by a special guest speaker.
Come out to North Vancouver this November 16th to help us celebrate the launch of Aliette’s new book. We hope to see you there!
