New­found­land au­thor Mar­shall God­win vis­ited the Spring­dale Public Li­brary re­cently for a read­ing from his Beothuk book se­ries.

God­win also poses the ques­tion, “Are they among us now?”

Born in Har­bour Bre­ton in a cot­tage hospi­tal in 1954, God­win grew up in Bel­loram and Har­bour Bre­ton. When he grad­u­ated from high school, he went to med­i­cal school at Me­mo­rial Univer­sity. God­win is cur­rently re­tired as a doc­tor, but still does clin­i­cal work.

His re­cently pub­lished

novel, The Warm Place, is the third in a se­ries of his­tor­i­cal fic­tion nov­els about the Beothuk. To­gether the three books form what he calls “The Beothuk Se­ries.”

Af­ter­wards, Mar­shall pre­sented the Spring­dale Public Li­brary with copies of his book.
