Writer in Residence Reception
You’re invited to a special performance by AU’s new writer in residence
Where do people go, and what do they do, after they die? Athabasca University’s new writer in residence, Tololwa M. Mollel, will touch on this mystery in his January 26 performance of his story From Lands of the Night.
Mollel, an award-winning children’s author, playwright, actor and storyteller, and his 10-year-old co-star Maya Yohani, will both tell and perform this story about a family’s struggle to save their baby boy. From Lands of the Night is directed by respected theatre director Jan Selman and also features God, angels, and the ancestors.
The performance is part of:
