This Salmon Arm author is a Kootenay favourite. Join us for a reading from her newest book.

“Burning Man, Slaying Dragon is an exciting, high stakes, spiritual adventure that spans decades, continents, cultures and generations. As a young, headstrong hippie, Deanna Barnhardt Kawatski leaves her home at her beloved Shuswap Lake in BC seeking meaning and enlightenment in an
astounding, dangerous quest that takes her overland from Europe to India, only to find that heaven may be back from whence she came.
Decades later, as a grown woman and mother, Deanna Barnhardt Kawatski embarks upon another journey, in the company of her own headstrong daughter, this time to the notorious Burning Man Festival in the scorched Nevada desert. In Burning Man, Slaying Dragon Deanna Barnhardt Kawatski effortlessly weaves together these two stories of past and present in a highly descriptive and page-turning style that will have
you reaching for your World Atlas in wonderment. Throughout the
adventure the author manages to face her own inner fears while under
constant threat of staggering sexism, highly questionable
transportation, murderous nomads, engulfing sand storms, transformative
drugs, and elusive love.”
