Indigenous Literatures Book Club: ʔbédayine
The Indigenous Literatures Book Club focuses on work by indigenous writers from around the world. Hosted by Tara McGowan-Ross, a Mi’kmaq multidisciplinary artist and writer, the meetings will take place every 4-6 weeks and are open to all.
For our January meeting, we will gather at La Petite Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (176 Bernard O.) at 7 pm to discuss ʔBédayine by Kaitlyn Purcell.
In Edmonton, Ronnie learns what it is to be a young Indigenous woman, almost-alone in the city; unable to hear herself over its noise, see through the glare of its lights to find the ground beneath her feet. Stories of addiction, self-discovery, and the love of a good friend come together to form ʔbédayine, Kaitlyn Purcell’s breathtaking debut.
**We offer a 20% discount on ʔBédayine from now until the meeting date.**

You also get to take advantage of a great discount! Your support is appreciated.
