Book Launch for RDC English Instructor Rod Schumacher

Come and celebrate the launch of Rod Schumacher’s new novel Baptism by Mud. The launch will be on Tuesday, May 26 at 7:30 p.m. in the RDC Library North Nook. Admission is free. There will be complimentary snacks and a cash bar, as well as copies of the book available for purchase.

Baptism by Mud is a mixed genre novel, loosely structured along the lines of a satirical quest. Relentless in its outrage, at times hilarious, always pitched with contentious emotions, the book grapples with the struggles of marriage, parenting, and personal fulfilment in contemporary Canadian culture.

“Rod Schumacher is the rodeo champion of the post-horse world, a cavalier of machine and prairie and mud, of story and language. This book is a great ride. Get ready for outlandish transformations.” – Robert Kroetsch

Rod Schumacher is an English instructor at Red Deer College, specializing in creative writing. He has published his work in many academic and literary journals across the country, and has published a book of short stories, Habits and Love, which was shortlisted for two Alberta book awards.
