Join us as we explore the influential books and writers who defined genres and captivated readers for decades. Each session of The Re-Read features a contemporary writer presenting a favourite book or author, to offer their insight as an author and share their joy as a reader. In this session, award-winning Ojibwe journalist and author Tanya Talaga will explore the complex, richly woven novel Celia’s Song by Lee Maracle. A master storyteller, writer and academic of the Stó꞉lō nation, Maracle’s writing explores experiences unique to Indigenous women. Celia’s Song brings to life the destructive legacy of colonial times while also poignantly demonstrating a community’s capacity to heal. Talaga, a highly sought-after and respected voice in her own right, will guide readers through this profound work and its messages of hope, pain and truth in the pursuance of Indigenous inclusion.

Interviewed by Alicia Elliot.
