NANAIMO - Author Kim Goldberg received a grant from the Canada Council of the Arts to write her latest book.

Nanaimo author Kim Goldberg is examining the lives of people who become physically ill because of exposure to wireless technology in her latest book.

She was recently awarded a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts to write a book about Wi-Fi sickness.

“I was thrilled to learn that this project will be supported,” said Goldberg in a press release.

“It will require a huge amount of time and work because the problem is literally global in scope.”

People interested in speaking to Goldberg have been contacting her, sharing stories about debilitating illnesses, job loss, sick children in schools wired for Wi-Fi, moving to remote setting to avoid wireless technology and sleeping in homemade Faraday cages. Faraday cages are enclosures that block electrical fields.

Goldberg is the author of four nonfiction books and two collections of poetry.
