Proud Canadian Voices: The Indigenous Author Series

Through a grant from the K.M. Hunter Charitable Foundation, the Thunder Bay Public Library has been able to create an Indigenous Authors Series which is being held throughout 2024. Authors read from their recent works, giving voice to communities that often go overlooked. 

The Indigenous Author Series not only showcases the diverse voices of Indigenous writers but also fosters a deeper understanding and appreciation of Indigenous cultures and experiences within the wider community. By providing a platform for these stories, the series helps bridge gaps, promote empathy, and encourage dialogue about the challenges and triumphs faced by Indigenous peoples in Canada.

Recently the series garnered some press which is in addition to the CBC Radio Interview back in January:
