Join Acclaimed Author Daniel Poliquin in Fredericton – May 11.
Explore a forgotten chapter of New Brunswick’s past and discover an unforgettable story when Daniel Poliquin reads from The Angel’s Jig, his latest critically acclaimed novel, in Fredericton.
Poliquin’s picaresque tale revisits an era when orphaned children and the elderly poor were auctioned into a form of indentured servitude. Narrated through the eyes and ears of an enigmatic protagonist, The Angel’s Jig is a joyous meditation on identity and the unpredictable voyage of existence. Find out why Quill & Quire has hailed The Angel’s Jig as “a thoroughly enjoyable odyssey about a memorable, yet perplexing character and a shocking custom that has all but disappeared from our collective memory.”
