Walking With: Honouring Indigenous Voices
Joseph Dandurand’s powerful poems in The East Side of It All tell the journey of a broken man who finally accepts his storytelling gift. Danielle Geller’s Dog Flowers is a memoir and living collection of memories and documents describing her return home to the Navajo Nation to retrace her mother’s life. Darrel J. McLeod’s poignant biography Peyakow speaks of reclaiming Cree dignity and triumphing against unimaginable odds.
These are some of the stories that will be featured at this special event, which is hosted by award-winning journalist Angela Sterritt, and is co-presented by the Sunshine Coast Festival of the Written Arts and the BC and Yukon Book Prizes. It showcases the work of authors who have all been recently recognized by the BC and Yukon Book Prizes.
Walking With: Honouring Indigenous Voices will include readings by all three authors and a discussion about the importance and power of Indigenous stories.
This is a free event and pre-registration is not required. Audience members will be asked to wear a mask in the Pavilion and on the grounds.
