Dave Bidini – Midnight Light: A Personal Journey to the North
As a member of the legendary band the Rheostatics, a journalist and a bestselling author, Dave Bidini has had the great privilege of exploring Canada’s incredible geography from coast to coast to coast. Yet, in his many travels, he’d never visited the Northwest Territories, “the white ribbon cross the top of North American maps found beneath a paper crease still crisp at the fold.” Dave is the only Canadian to have been nominated for all three of Canada’s main entertainment awards, the Gemini Award for television work, the Genie Awards for film work and the Juno Awards for music, as well as been nominated on Canada’s national book awards program, Canada Reads.
