Authors & Headliners
Gary Garrison is an Okie from Muskogee who let his hair grow long, came to Canada, and raised three children instead of killing people in Vietnam. He has been the Editor of Alberta Hansard, coordinator of volunteer prison visitors at “the Max”, and an active member of Edmonton’s writing community. For fun, Gary writes poems with and for patients and visitors at the U of A hospital. He writes and performs songs and plays the guitar, harmonica, flute, and didgeridoo. His third nonfiction book, Human on the Inside: Unlocking the Truth of Canada’s Prisons, was published this February by the University of Regina Press.
