Risto Pakarinen – author of ”Someday Jennifer”

Risto Pakarinen, author and one-time wanna-be hockey agent, reads from his book and talks about the serendipitous way from idea and script to finding a literary agent and publication – in Canada!

Someday Jennifer is a feelgood book about a middle-aged man who wants to escape his miserable life and go back in time. And he figures out a way to do it in a quick and efficient way. Once back in the 1980s, he goes looking for Jennifer, his first love.

A DEATH IN THE RAINFOREST
How a language and a way of life came to an end in Papua New Guinea


Don Kulick is an anthropologist who has spent some 30 years visi­ting an isolated community in Papua New Guinea trying to learn the language and the culture, making friends, but also dodging ambushes and witnessing deep changes to the villagers’ way of life.

Listen to him talking about his experiences and learn more about a very different way of life – maybe one on the brink of extinction.

Time Magazine named his book one of their 32 Books You Need to Read This Summer, and National Geographic put it on their Best Travel Books of Summer list.
