Meet the Intrepid Fox

Living on the fringes of wilderness in northern Alberta was how author Helen Liss Ivanhoe Smart learned about life, and she recounts it all in this family memoir. Focused largely on her father, the fox, John Liss, who battled agribusiness while keeping a strict regiment for his seven children, the book is a mix of humor and hard-living. She’ll be signing copies at Chaucer’s Books on Tuesday, October 16, at 6 p.m.
