The April 29th event features author Karen McBride. Registration is required. Click the register button to sign up. Once you do, you will receive updates and information on how to attend through Zoom closer to the date of the event.

Karen is Algonquin Anishnaabe from the Timiskaming First Nation in the territory that is now Quebec. Growing up on the Rez meant the bush was her backyard and that backyard became all manner of places: Middle-earth, Hyrule, a world populated by zombies, and all things in between. She loves to write stories about truth and healing, but mostly about magic and myth. She hopes to continue to explore the themes and lessons taught to her through the oral tradition of her elders and ancestors. Her debut novel, Crow Winter, was shortlisted for the Ottawa Book Awards, the PMC Indigenous Literature Award, and the Sunburst Award for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic. She currently lives in Ottawa with her sister and their handsome little dog, Oscar
