On January 30, 2011 The McIntosh Gallery will host, in conjunction with the Sense of Place exhibition, a special event with Alistair McLeod and Nino Ricci, guest writers for the Sense of Place publication.
The McIntosh Gallery invites you to a reading by Alistair Macleod and Nino Ricci in memory of Dr. Suzanne Kaufmann. Canadian author Alistair MacLeod was the 2001 winner of the prestigious IMPAC Dublin Literary Award for his novel No Great Mischief (1999). He has also published The Lost Salt Gift of Blood (1976), As Birds Bring Forth the Sun (1986) and Island: The Collected Stories (2000). In 2008 he became an Officer of the Order of Canada.
Nino Ricci won the Governor General’s Award for Fiction twice: in 1990 for Lives of the Saints (also a Books in Canada First Novel Award winner), and in 2008 for The Origin of Species, which also appeared on the long list for the Giller Prize. In 1997, Ricci’s novel Where She Has Gone was short-listed for the Giller Prize.
MacLeod and Ricci were guest writers for the publication Sense of Place: A Cross-Border Print Exhibition, organized by Windsor Printmaker’s Forum. The exhibition is on view at the McIntosh Gallery from January 6th to February 19th 2011.
