Cry Wolf: Harold Johnson Virtual and Micro-Reading

Harold Johnson, based in La Ronge, is doing a micro-reading from his latest book, Cry Wolf (U of R Press, 2020) on September 29th at the Kikinahk Friendship Centre at 3:00 pm CST. Cry Wolf examines the death of a young man killed in a wolf attack near his work camp; Johnson considers how we fail to take this apex predator seriously at our own peril.

The small, socially-distanced “micro-reading” will only have twenty-five seats available. Due to COVID-19 procedures, this event requires mandatory pre-registration and for all of the attendees to wear a mask.

The event will also be live-streamed on SaskBooks' Facebook page. A video recording of the reading will be released at a later date.

When you arrive at the venue, the host will require registration confirmation and will ask a series of COVID-19 screening questions.

About Harold R. Johnson:

HAROLD R. JOHNSON is the author of five works of fiction and five works of non-fiction. His most recent books are: Cry Wolf: Inquest into the True Nature of a Predator — Peace and Good Order: The Case for Indigenous Justice in Canada, which was shortlisted for a Shaunessy Cohen Prize for political writing — Clifford — and Firewater: How Alcohol Is Killing My People (and Yours), which was a finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award for Non-fiction. Born and raised in northern Saskatchewan, he was a member of the Canadian Navy and worked at mining and logging before graduating from Harvard Law School. He managed a private practice for several years and then became a Crown prosecutor. Johnson is a member of the Montreal Lake Cree Nation. He is now retired and lives on his family trapline with his wife, Joan.

Cry Wolf Description:

Growing up on a northern trap line, Harold Johnson was taught to keep his distance from wolves. For decades, wolves did the same for humans. But now this seems to be changing. In 2005, twenty-two-year-old Kenton Carnegie was killed in a wolf attack near his work camp. Part story, part forensic analysis, Cry Wolf examines this and other attacks, showing how we fail to take this apex predator seriously at our own peril.
