Using her memories and stories told by others, Patricia Sandberg penned a work of narrative non-fiction ‘Sun Dogs and Yellowcake – Gunnar Mines, a Canadian Story’. This book dramatizes the Cold War era when raw uranium was casually handled by adults and children were unaware of the dangers of radiation.
Patricia will discuss the voice she used to tell the story and how that carried into her self-publishing decision. A former mining and securities lawyer, Patricia is working on a novel. Sun Dogs and Yellowcake won two international awards, was shortlisted for the Canadian Authors Fred Kerner award, and was a finalist for Whistler Independent Book Awards
