Dear Vancouver Friends,
You are cordially invited to join Simon Fraser University and Geist Magazine in welcoming artist Michael Nicoll Yaghulanaas for a discussion of his work Remember at SFU Harbour Centre on August 27th at 7:00 pm.

Yahgulanaas is best known as the father of Haida Manga, an art form which re-frames traditional Haida images and narratives by adapting them into Japanese manga-styled stories.
Remember was created for the Vancouver Memory Festival and tells the story of memory, rebirth, and the mighty Selena Peratovich. But more than that, it is the story of a teacher, which is perhaps the story of Yahgulanaas himself. In his own words: “Of course he had to tell everyone. He was after all a teacher.”
You can view more of Yahgulanaas’ work here or read his comics, blog, and reviews here.
We look forward to seeing you there.
