Alberta Minister of Tourism Ricardo Miranda will announce new support today for the province’s book publishing industry.

On Friday, Miranda will be joined by Alexander Finbow, president of the Book Publishers Association of Alberta, to make the announcement at Hotel Arts in downtown Calgary.

Finbow, an Alberta-based author and publisher at Canmore’s Renegade Arts Entertainment, joined forces with Winnipeg illustrator Nyco Rudolph in 2017 for the book When Big Bears Invade.

The story revolves around a number of enraged giant bears levelling cities and towns in Canada, including Calgary, as a response to the environmental destruction to their habitat.
