Author launches northern-focused autobiography in Iqaluit

Interested in an Arctic read? Nick Newbery’s autobiography, “Never A Dull Moment: Forty Years in Education in Canada’s North (and in a few other places),” is released this month. In Iqaluit, the author will launch the book and sign copies at Arctic Ventures this weekend. Newbery’s book offers his perspective on historic events—particularly in Northern Ireland and the Canadian Eastern Arctic—and his critiques on the northern education system. It also shares his thoughts on the changing world of Inuit and situations faced by youth. Alongside these insights, the book follows Newbery’s time in the British residential school system, university life in Ireland, his teaching French in Toronto and moving North. The author now lives in Nova Scotia, where he’s taught courses on Nunavut at Mount St. Vincent University. Newbery will hold his book launch and signing in Iqaluit on Friday, April 5, at 5 p.m. and on Saturday, April 6, at 11 a.m. (Photo courtesy of Nick Newbery)

      It literally says it right in the 150 word paragraph, Marc. “Newbery will hold his book launch and signing in Iqaluit on Friday, April 5, at 5 p.m. and on Saturday, April 6, at 11 a.m.”
