Margaret Atwood and Graeme Gibson join Arctic Voyage this Summer

   Mississauga, ON - Canada’s most celebrated author, Margaret Atwood, will be rejoining Adventure Canada as part of an outstanding team of Inuit and southern specialists guiding passengers on an expeditionary voyage through the Canadian Arctic and Greenland this summer.

On her previous voyage with Adventure Canada in 2005, Atwood met Vincent Lam, then serving as the ship’s doctor, and recent winner of the Giller Prize for his book, Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures.

Will this voyage be as lucky?

Atwood is joined by husband Graeme Gibson, whose latest book, The Bedside Book of Birds, could be considered required reading for this voyage in partnership with the Rare Bird Club, Bird Life International and the Harvard Museum of Natural History.

While aboard the 104-passenger expeditionary vessel, Atwood will present readings from her novels and talk about her own experiences in the North. During free time, Atwood and the other resource staff will be available for mingling and private discussion. With Adventure Canada’s intimate and fun, casual atmosphere, passengers get more personal attention from resource staff than any other tour operator’s expeditions.

The ten other resource staff onboard share Atwood’s enthusiasm about the Arctic and will share their expertise on their respective specializations. Marine biology, archaeology, bird watching, photography and Inuit culture are just a sample of interests represented on this trip. A full lecture schedule promises to make this adventure as educational as it is unique. The voyage, called Birds and Shutterbugs, runs August 18 - 29, 2007.

Other Arctic voyages this summer feature Stuart Maclean of CBC’s The VinylCafé, Ken McGoogan, 2006 winner of the Pierre Berton Award for Lady Franklin’s Revenge, Documentary director John Houston, who is releasing his latest film Kiviuq this year and Pakak Innukshuk, who recently starred in the acclaimed film, Sila (The Journals of Knud Rasmussen).
