The Red Chesterfield

As part of Wayne Arthurson’s residency, he hosted an Author Reading & Discussion, at the Wood Buffalo Regional Library.

Arthurson gave a reading of his new book The Red Chesterfield (University of Calgary Press), followed by a group discussion and individual meetings with local artists.

He was impressed by our region’s focus on the arts.

“Any community with a strong arts scene is a strong community. Arts not only help the economy, they helps the spirit. Economically it’s been proven one dollar spent on art translates into $10 in the community. Art connects and builds.”
