Join MaryLou Driedger for the virtual launch of her book Lost on the Prairie, published by Wandering Fox, an imprint of Heritage House. Featuring a conversation hosted by Harriet Zaidman.
Set between Kansas and Saskatchewan in 1907, Lost on the Prairie is a coming-of-age novel for middle-grade readers. The story follows a young boy, Peter, who gets separated from his family as they travel to Canada, and he must find his way alone, across the immense prairie landscape.
MaryLou Driedger has been a columnist for Winnipeg Free Press and The Carillon, and her freelance work has been published in numerous periodicals, anthologies, travel guides, institutional histories, and curriculums.

Host Harriet Zaidman is a children's writer and book reviewer in Winnipeg and worked as a teacher-librarian for 25 years. Her second novel, Second Chances, comes out in the Fall.
In this free, online event, MaryLou will talk about writing research and inspiration with host Harriet Zaidman, read from the book, and take questions from the audience. All are welcome!
