Mohawk English professor publishes first novel, launch at HPL


Mohawk English professor John Corr has published his first novel with a launch on May 4 at the Hamilton Public Library.

Corr, a Doctor of English and third-degree black belt in Yoshinkan Aikido, has combined those two passions in his first young adult’s novel, Eight Times Up. The novel addresses some of the challenges of youth and positive life lessons on how to cope with adversity.

The launch event for Eight Times Up will be held in the Hamilton Room of the Central Library (55 York Blvd.), from 12 – 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 4. Book sales will be provided by Epic Books.
