There is a new face coming to the Fort Saskatchewan Public Library bringing with him some "high-calibre" writing skills.
Journalist and best-selling author Michael Hingston officially takes on his new role as the library's writer in residence on Wednesday (May 2).
"We are very fortunate to have such a high-calibre writer taking up residence in our library," said public services manager Emily Paulsen. "We really hope that the community takes advantage of this wonderful opportunity by dropping into the library or making an appointment with Michael."
Hingston has written for the Washington Post, Wired, The Atlantic, The Guardian, The Walrus, the Globe and Mail and other newspapers. He has written on topics such as Roald Dahl, salt and why everything in Alberta is named after Winston Churchill.
