Whit Fraser, former CBC journalist and Gov. Gen. Mary Simon’s husband, is set to re-release his memoir of working in the North for five decades and host a lecture in Ottawa on the subject next week.

True North Rising: My Fifty Year Journey with the Inuit and Dene Leaders who Transformed Canada’s North was first published in 2018. 

The Penguin Random House Canada re-published edition of the book includes an audio version, and is set to hit store shelves on Jan. 31.

The day after True North Rising is re-released, Fraser is set to host a talk with Canadian Geographic.

The talk is scheduled to take place Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Geographical Society building at 50 Sussex Dr. in Ottawa. Admission is a pay-what-you-can donation to the society.

Fraser, 80, has published two books in recent years.

Last year, he dabbled in fiction for the first time with Cold Edge of Heaven.

In an October 2022 interview, Fraser hinted that a third book might be on the way.
