Storytelling is at the core of each Adventure Canada expedition. Travellers journey both by sea and through the music, artwork and words of Adventure Canada’s luminary resource specialists and local guides, who include award-winning authors, musicians, historians, culturalists, and scientists. New this season, guests aboard the Newfoundland and Wild Labrador expedition can take advantage of the adventure travel company’s first-ever Floating Book Club, co-hosted by Canada’s bestselling authors and storytellers Doug Gibson, Terry Fallis and Kathleen Winter. The thirteen–day voyage features the rugged charm of Newfoundland and natural splendor of Labrador, and departs July 5, 2015.

“We pride ourselves on enhancing our adventures for travellers, both onboard and ashore,” said Cedar Swan, Adventure Canada Vice-President. “The new Floating Book Club is an exclusive opportunity for our guests to engage with bestselling authors on an intimate and inclusive level. Laugh and learn with fellow travellers, and seek answers, clarification, and perspectives direct from the source. We’re thrilled to welcome Kathleen, Doug, and Terry aboard.”

The 2015 Floating Book Club features the following three Canadian authors and their respective books:

  •     Doug Gibson, Stories About Storytellers
  •     Kathleen Winter, Annabel
  •     Terry Fallis, The Best Laid Plan

Acclaimed publisher, editor, and storyteller Doug Gibson—whose authors have won every major book award in Canada—will lead Adventure Canada’s Floating Book Club. Kathleen Winter will guide readers through her groundbreaking novel, Annabel. Set in coastal Labrador, Annabel was a #1 Canadian bestseller, and a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, the Governor General’s Literary Award, and the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize. Terry Fallis will present the first of his four national bestselling books. His hilarious debut novel, The Best Laid Plan, won the 2008 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour and the 2011 Canada Reads competition.

In addition to his literary leadership, Doug Gibson will also perform an exclusive performance of his one-man play, Stories About Storytellers, and offer his unique editor’s insights into the work of Alice Munro.

Beginning on the French island of Saint Pierre, travellers journey through Newfoundland history, exploring French, First Nations, Basque, and Viking influences. In Labrador, guests visit the Inuit homeland, Nunatsiavut—celebrating ten years of self-governance in 2015—and follow the trail of the explorers northward along Canada’s wild east coast. Highlights include visits to Gros Morne National Park, the Torngat Mountains National Park and Norse settlements. The expedition also features ample opportunities to spot polar bears, whales, and seals.
