Join us on Oct. 26 for a reading with Alison Watt, author of Dazzle Patterns, a novel of the Halifax explosion, with characters loosely based on her own family history. The release of this novel coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion.
Alison will read from the novel in the Dalhousie Art Gallery, surrounded by drawings made by Arthur Lismer, best-known as a painter and a member of the Group of Seven. Lismer lived in Halifax in 1917, when he was President of the Victoria College of Art (now NSCAD University). Arthur Lismer is a character in Dazzle Patterns.
