Details

WLU Press and Ben McNally Books welcome one and all to the launch of Blazing Figures: A Life of Robert Markle by J.A. Wainwright.

The book is a biography of well-know native painter Robert Markle, whose nude paintings and drawings were deemed obscene in the 1960s. CBC has some great archival footage of him talking to Patrick Watson about it. Markle was a friend of Patrick Watson and Gordon Lightfoot, both of whom were interviewed extensively for this book.
