Germany @ Canada 2017 Sneak Peek at Norbert Gstrein's New Novel
How does a chosen literary setting affect story, characters, and voice of a novel? Last year, the award-winning author Norbert Gstrein was our featured author during Germany @ Canada's 2017's Borderless Mountains program during IFOA 2017 and at the Banff Centre's Literary Arts and Banff Mountain Festival.

You can read a sample chapter from the new novel here.
