Thelma Pepper: A Life in Pictures

Artful Reading

This online book club event is free for Remai Modern members and $10 for non-members.

Join Remai Modern’s Robin Adair and his co-host Amy Jo Ehman for Artful Readings online, featuring Amy Jo’s book Thelma: A Life in Pictures. This very special book honours photographer Thelma Pepper, her passion, and her dedication to the creative spirit. 

About the author: Amy Jo Ehman met Thelma Pepper in 2019 when Thelma was 98, spending many hours together, poring over Thelma's photo albums and exploring the primary events of her long life, including her development as a photographer at the age of 60. Their book Thelma: A Life of Pictures was published in September 2020. Other books by Amy Jo include Prairie Feast: A Writer’s Journey Home for Dinner and Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens. She lives in Saskatoon.   

One dollar from every purchase of Thelma Pepper: A Life in Pictures made before August 15 will go to support Remai Modern programs. You can purchase the book from the Art & Design Store using the link at the bottom of this page.
