Wharton in the News (Again)

THE VOICE - September 18, 2002

Thomas Wharton, author of the award-winning books Icefields and Salamander, who has been on a list of ‘Must Read’ authors, who recently won a Writers Guild of Alberta prize, and who manages to round out his waking moments by also working as an AU tutor, has added another item to his list of things to do: he is the new writer-in-residence at the University of Alberta. An article in the Sept. 11 issue of The Journal notes that Wharton will be available to offer advice to anyone who has a book on the go, and promises to be gentle in his critiques. One question begs to be asked: “Thomas, when do you sleep?”
