Meet the Author - Joseph Lothian
Tuesday, September 25, 2018, 07:00pm
Meet Another Mount Pleasant Author!

Join us in the Lower Hall at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 25th to meet MPCA resident Joseph Lothian, hear him speak about his entertaining novel, The Grasshopper, ask him your questions, and perhaps even buy a copy for a good reading experience.  Joseph brings to life a 1930s coal mining town through the vivid reminiscences of Mykola, who began his young life in poverty and deprivation and then enters the coal mines. Many characters touch his life, none more than his one boyhood friend.

Mykola (aka Kola) Krushelitznicki is an awkward young Ukrainian boy whose early years are a weave of poverty, frustration and heartache. He eventually enters the coal mines as a young teenager looking to become a man, help his fatherless family survive their abject poverty, and gain some independence.  A terrible incident happens to him and his close boyhood friend while they are in the mine that drives him away from his roots and takes him to Vancouver Island. There he starts a new life where he finds both love and heartbreak.   It is the conclusion to this book that brings the story full circle when Kola, now living in a seniors’ home, is forced by a tortured conscience to confront that moment in time that caused him to leave his home.

If you’d like a copy to read before Joseph’s talk, please contact Brianna at burichan@live.com or 403 836-3626.
