Matthew Anderson, born in Shaunavon, raised in Swift Current and Regina, now living in Nova Scotia, returns to Swift Current to present his recently published The Good Walk: Creating New Paths on Traditional Prairie Trails (University of Regina Press, 2024). The Good Walk is grounded in walks undertaken in southwest Saskatchewan, but is infused with reflections on family/settler history and Indigenous perspectives of land.

Matthew is an ordained Lutheran minister, has a PhD from McGill, taught for over 20 years at Concordia University, and currently teaches at St Francis Xavier University. The titles of Matthew’s books say a lot about his interests: Prophets of Love: The Unlikely Kinship of Leonard Cohen and the Apostle Paul (McGill-Queens University Press, 2023); Our Home and Treaty Land (with Dr. Ray Aldred, WoodLake Friesen Press, 2024); Pairings: The Bible and Booze (Novalis, 2021).

He writes journal and textbook articles and has a podcast called “Pilgrimage Stories from Up and Down the Staircase.” He’s written, shot, and produced two full-length documentaries about pilgrimage. These can be found on his websites, SomethingGrand.ca and UnsettledWords.com.

Write Out Loud appreciates sponsorship by the Canada Council through The Writers’ Union of Canada, Stark & Marsh, and Anderson & Co.
