1967—A Coming of Age Story ft. Richard Doornink

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Richard Doornink is no stranger to stories. His background in film and video study and production, editing and a love for writing has brought him to the release of his first novel. 1967—A Coming of Age Story will certainly resonate with anyone growing up in Canada in the 60’s, but it will also work its way into the hearts and imaginations of those who grew up in a different time.

In this conversation, Rick and I talk about the impetus for the book, the idea of setting as a character, some of the cultural references woven into the book, and the question of what it means to come of age—in any age.
