Bidini is raconteur, journalist and musician. You might even call him a Renaissance man, if he wasn't so down to earth and unpretentious. Midnight Light is his story of spending an extended amount of time in Yellowknife and the people he meets while working for a local newspaper. It sounds simple but Bidini has the ability to tell many stories at once: from the Dene elders whose wisdom he shares; the local characters; as well as the complicated racism that persists in daily interactions.
