Author and human rights activist Kevin Annett launches his international book tour in Nanaimo Thursday (Nov 25).

Annett is known for his work to document and confront crimes in Canada’s Indian residential schools.

He recently helped lead a protest against Pope Benedict in London, England, where he served a public summons on the Pope for what he calls “crimes against the innocent”.

Much of this work is documented in his latest book, Unrepentant: Disrobing the Emperor, released by O Books in England.

Annett will be reading from his book and speaking at Vancouver Island University Thursday from 7-9 p.m., Bldg. 355, Rm. 203.
