• Turtle Island Reads celebrates the best in Indigenous Canadian writing

    Indigenous authors and stories took centre stage with the second annual edition of Turtle Island Reads. The event celebrated Indigenous Canadian fiction with a panel discussion on three books including Bearskin Diary by Carol Danies, This Accident of Being Lost by Leanne Simpson and Son of a Trickster by Eden Robsinson.

    The 2017 Turtle Island Reads event was hosted by author and CBC Ottawa journalist Waubgeshig Rice. CBC Montreal's Nantali Indongo moderated the discussion with book advocates Shannon Webb-Campbell, Moe Clark and Ryan McMahon.

    The public event drew about 100 spectators to Tanna Schulich Hall at McGill University and even more online to CBC's various Facebook pages.
