As part of National Indigenous History Month, we asked two-time Scotiabank Giller Prize finalist Eden Robinson to curate a list of five emerging Indigenous authors to spotlight. These writers examine topics of race, sexuality, trauma, survival, gender and so much more in their work from a range of insightful and refreshing perspectives. Your reading list just got longer.
What do authors Craig Davidson, Eden Robinson, Cherie Dimaline and Waubgeshig Rice have in common? As returning Delegate Kevin Hardcastle sees it, not only were they participants at #FestofAuthors18—their approach to storytelling and the subsequent trajectory of their careers all demonstrate the shifting preferences and expectations of Canadian readers.
