The Museum of the Highwood has a special night planned for Wednesday, Nov. 30.

It's in honour of the 75th anniversary of the W.O. Mitchell novel 'Who Has Seen the Wind'.

Curator with the museum, Irene Kerr, says there are some special guests coming.

"Barb and Orm Mitchell are going to make time in their very busy schedule to come to the museum on November 30th in the evening at 7 o'clock and they'll be doing a reading and we'll have refreshments and just visiting. I thought it would be nice for them to come to High River and visit all their friends that are still here. I know they had a lot of friends here."

Orm is W.O.'s son and Barb is his daughter-in-law. 

"I'm pretty excited to see them and if anybody would like to join us that evening, please call us and book ahead. We just need numbers, so we know how many people to prepare for."

The Museum of the Library's phone number is (403) 652-7156. Hours of operation are 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mon-Sat and 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sundays.

'Who Has Seen the Wind' is considered the Canadian prairie novel and has sold nearly one million copies in Canada.

The Museum of the Highwood also has a permanent display dedicated to W.O. Mitchell which includes the Underwood typewriter he actually wrote 'Who Has Seen the Wind' which was completed when Mitchell and his family lived in High River.

It was originally published in 1947 and was made into a movie in 1977 starring Brian Painchaud, Gordon Pinsent and Helen Shaver. 

There will also be copies of a new hardcover version illustrated by William Kurelek available for sale during the November 30th event.
