Conversations with Authors continues with a live conversation with Bomgiizhik (Isaac Murdoch), author of The Trail of Nenaboozhoo, Monday, January 17 at 12 pm.
Conversations with Authors is a new series hosted by Indigenous Education and Library and Academic Services to further the conversation around truth and reconciliation and expand our understanding of Canada’s history, Indigenous cultures and traditional knowledge. We have selected some of the best of Canadian Indigenous writing, and lined up live conversations with the authors of these books. Everyone is welcome to attend the live sessions, which will be recorded and made available afterward.
“Nanaboozhoo, the creator spirit-being of Ojibway legend, gave the people many gifts. This collection of oral stories presents legends of Nanaboozhoo along with other creation stories that tell of the adventures of numerous beloved animal spirits. The Trail of Nanaboozhoo is a book of art and storytelling that preserves the legends of the Anishinaabe people. Each story is accompanied by strikingly beautiful illustrations by revered Indigenous artists Isaac Murdoch and Christi Belcourt.” (Published by Kegedonce Press, 2020)
