Prairie at Mankota Community Pasture near Grasslands National Park. McCord, Saskatchewan

Book Launch: “Islands of Grass” by Branimir Gjetvaj

You are invited to a launch of the Islands of Grass, a passionate and beautifully illustrated plea for one of the most endangered and least protected landscapes on Earth: the remaining fragments of natural prairie on the northern plains.

Written by award-winning author and naturalist Trevor Herriot and accompanied with the remarkable photography by Branimir Gjetvaj, Islands of Grass is an irresistible call to action to protect and preserve what remains of this natural splendour before it is too late.

Branimir and Trevor will talk about and show images from the book project, with book sales and signing to follow. The evening will include a short reading by acclaimed author Dave Carpenter from his new book Gold.

The Saskatoon book launch is at the Alice Turner Branch Library, 110 Nelson Rd. on Wednesday November 15, 2017 at 7 p.m.
