Family Literacy Event featuring Michael Kusugak

January 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

FREE

In celebration of Family Literacy Day, the Tidemark Theatre Society has once again partnered with the Campbell River Literacy Association to present a FREE family event for the community. This year we will be presenting award winning children’s author and storyteller, Michael Kusugak!

Tickets are free of charge but we ask that you contact the box office to reserve your tickets.

Michael Kusugak grew up in Repulse Bay, a small village in the Northwest Territories. “I’ve always been close to the land, the sea and the animals,” he says. “I want to teach everything I know about how to live here, and write about everything kids like to do.”

One of the most rewarding experiences for Michael is visiting children in schools and at libraries. He mesmerizes young audiences with narratives from his Arctic home and tales told with string. He also enjoys hunting, fishing, boating and looking out his study window at the northern landscape stretching towards the horizon.

Michael’s wife Geraldine brings a variety of items that the people can touch, try on, try out and experience. Items such as an Inuit drum, try on an amauti, (a coat for carrying babies) look at and touch tools and implements, crocheted hats, and other items. What’s a Qulliq (stone seal oil lamp)? Look at a scale model of a kayak to see how it is constructed and much more. Geraldine also shows a power point presentation of life in the arctic.

First come, first served. Limit 4 tickets per household.
