Northern Reads Authors Series

In addition to supporting literacy programs in remote, northern communities, we’re celebrating Indigenous writing across Canada in our first annual Authors Series!

On Tuesday evenings at 7pm throughout February, join us for a ‘meet & greet’ with uniquely talented and creative Indigenous Canadian authors.

Bring your favourite warm cuppa to our virtual gathering and enjoy one hour of author readings, inspiration, stories and a time of Q&A.

This is a free event. Registration is required. We are excited to engage Canadians in meaningful, reconciliatory conversation.
