An acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter will be appearing in Calgary Thursday to promote a new book.
Tom Wilson (Blackie and the Rodeo Kings; Lee Harvey Osmond; Junkhouse) can now add ‘author’ to his list of credits.
His new memoir called Beautiful Scars tells his own story of growing up in Hamilton, Ontario and finding out his family wasn’t who he thought.
“The book is written as a 70-thousand word loveletter to the people who gave me a fighting chance and to the strength of women and it’s the journey of me finding out at a very late age, actually five years ago at the age of 53 that my mother and father weren’t really my mother and father,” said the three-time Juno award-winner.
Wilson will be appearing during Wordfest at the Memorial Park Library Thursday night at 6 p.m.
‘Beautiful Scars: Steeltown Secrets, Mohawk Skywalkers and the Road Home’ is available now
