A Fireside Chat with PK Hamilton


The Ermatinger Clergue National Historic Site will be hosting a unique reading and chat with the award winning Sault born author Patti-Kay (PK) Hamilton Thursday June 13 at 6pm in the Summer Kitchen.

PK will be reading from her book Trapline to Microphone, sharing stories of her years on a trapline in the North West Territories and the circumstances that led her to a 30 year career as a CBC reporter. PK currently resides in Fort Smith, NWT and her love of the Canadian north is evident in such stories as the night she was rescued by the northern lights and traveling to CBC studios by dog team.

PK Hamilton is in the unique position of having lived in the Old Stone House as a newborn. Her grandparents, Albert and Helen Hamilton owned the Old Stone House and her father and mother, Fred and Kay (nee Heaney), rented an apartment in the house as newly weds. Fred was the city editor of the Sault Star.

The reading is a wine and appetizer event and tickets are limited. Those interested in attending can call the Ermatinger Clergue National Historic Site for tickets at 705-759-5443.
