Creating Legends

PRESENTED ON APR 12, 2013
IN BANGOR, ME @ VOL 8

Fiction writer Brad Beauregard discusses the way stories, legends, and tall tales help us revive the experience of the past, even if the past itself is lost in the process. By illustrating the details of some of the personal history that went into his fiction novel he explains just how history gets lost in the maturation of legends and the like.

In Search of Bigfoot

BY CHRISTOPHER MILLIN
@ VOL 10 ON DEC 07, 2017

Christopher Millin's own story is ever-changing. In this chapter he owns and operates Saint-Germain Café Gallery in Penticton. Past chapters have included his adventures in journalism and photography, his time as an editor, copyeditor and graphic designer for several Lower Mainland publications, writing middle-grade children's novels (The King of Arugula, Thistledown Press, 2007) and publishing an arts and literature magazine for children (Crow Toes Quarterly: 2007 – 2011). Since his days with Crow Toes Quarterly, Christopher's motivation has been to support and showcase talented artists who don't have a proper forum to have their work seen, read or heard. Christopher began his life as a troublemaker and a master liar, so he also has plenty of experience crafting tall tales.
