GAIL BOWEN's first Joanne Kilbourn mystery, Deadly Appearances (1990), was nominated for the W.H. Smith/Books in Canada Best First Novel Award. Her new novel The Gifted is the fourteenth novel in the series and she is hard at work on the fifteenth. A Colder Kind of Death (1995) won the Arthur Ellis Award for best crime novel; in 2008 Reader's Digest named Bowen Canada's Best Mystery Novelist; in 2009 she received the Derrick Murdoch Award from the Crime Writers of Canada. Bowen has also written plays that have been produced across Canada and on CBC Radio. Now retired from teaching at the First Nations University, Bowen lives in Regina.
JENNIFER COCKRALL-KING is a Canadian food journalist and author based in Edmonton, Alberta, and Naramata, in the heart of British Columbia’s wine country in the Okanagan Valley. Jennifer’s first book, Food and the City: Urban Agriculture and The New Food Revolution is about the groundswell of urban agriculture in cities around the world. It examines why there is a reaction to the current global, industrial food system, and how urban agriculture is changing the mood, texture and dinner plates in over a dozen cities in five countries profiled in her book.
In addition to these presentations, there will be several key workshops local leaders in communities small and large. The conference will take place all day April 12th at Wanuskewin Heritage Park near Saskatoon.
