In the late fifties, Ann Kujundzic, her husband and artist Zeljko, and three children—with a fourth on the way—packed up their lives in post-war Edinburgh and emigrated to the Kootenays in BC, seeking adventure and opportunity. In Nelson, Ann was involved in establishing the Kootenay School of Art in 1960, a remarkable institution whose history has yet to be documented in the way it merits—until now.
Honest, intelligent and brave, "New Ground" shares the life of a remarkable woman whose efforts in the political and artistic communities of BC are still being felt today.
Join Ann in celebrating the launch of her memoir, "New Ground," at Hillside Coffee & Tea (Victoria, BC), on Thursday, May 30, at 6:30 PM. Books will be available for purchase.
