Canadian writer Angie Abdou reads from her book "This One Wild Life – A Mother-Daughter Wilderness Memoir".

This One Wild Life – A Mother-Daughter Wilderness Memoir
Disillusioned with overly competitive organized sports and concerned about her lively daughter’s growing shyness, author and memoirist Angie Abdou takes on her next challenge: to hike a peak a week with Katie. They will bond in nature and discover together the glories of outdoor activity. What could go wrong? Well, among other things, it turns out that Angie loves hiking but Katie doesn’t.


This event is co-organised by the University of Innsbruck’s Canadian Studies Centre and the Center for Inter-American Studies (represented by Ursula Moser and Eva-Maria Müller).
