Don't forget to come out to the Reid-Thompson Library tonight for some summertime adventures with Ric Driedger. Enjoy the previously published story below.

Northern Saskatchewan author and canoe specialist Ric Driediger is going to be reading his new book at the Reid-Thompson Public Library on Wednesday, March 29. At 6:30 p.m., guests can attend the event and hear Driediger read his book about events on the Churchill River and stories of his early life. 

Driediger grew up in Drake, Saskatchewan, and owns Churchill River Canoe Outfitters in Missinipe, Saskatchewan. For over 50 years, he has been guiding canoe trips. Travellers will often stop at his shop to say hello and ask for tips on their water journeys.  

Paddling Northern Saskatchewan: A Guide to 80 Canoe Routes was Driediger’s first book, which offers a variety of canoeing experiences for new or experienced paddlers. His second book he goes more into detail about his personal stories with canoeing and his life. 

The library is hosting this event for anyone who enjoys going on the water or enjoys a good book. “We do actually have quite a few canoers in the community, I myself kayak and we actually have a lot of kayakers as well. It also sounds very fun,” says Kate Lucyshyn, head librarian and a host of the event. 

The reading begins at 6:30 p.m. and Lucyshyn recommends stopping by early to get a good seat before it starts. Come enjoy your evening at the library with the canoeing enthusiasts.
