An opportunity to explore three Indigenous writers. One book per month. Join in for one, two or all three.

  1. The Inconvenient Indian: a Curious Account of Native People in North America: by Thomas King The Toronto Star writes: “Every Canadian should read Thomas King’s new book… It’s funny, it’s readable, and it makes you think. If you have any kind of a social conscience, The Inconvenient Indian will also make you angry.”

June 29    The Inconvenient Indian.

  1. Medicine Walk: Richard Wagamese. A novel filled with insight and compassion in which a son is called to visit his estranged father.

July 27 Medicine Walk.

  1. The Break: Katherena Vermette. The Break is a story of a young Metis mother who looks out her window and sees someone in trouble on the Break. Madeleine Thein, writes: “ The lives of the girls and women in The Break are not easy, but their voices-complex, urgent, and unsparing- lay bare what it means to survive, not only once but multiple times, against the forces of private and national histories.”

August 31 to reflect upon The Break

Each gathering will be held at 618 Route 935, Wood Point at 10:00-11:30. (Each of these books has mature content and profanity. Reader discretion is advised!)
