Library Hosts Indigenous Writers

Two of Canada’s most prominent Indigenous writers will be speaking on our campus later this week.
Lee Maracle and Armand Garnet Ruffo will be here to discuss their work as part of the Saint Mary’s Reading Series, organized by the Department of English.

For more than four decades, Lee Maracle has been an engaged thinker, teacher, activist and writer on the experiences of First Nations people. Her latest acclaimed novel is titled, Celia’s Song.

In addition to writing fiction, Armand Garnet Ruffo is a filmmaker, dramatist, editor and scholar. He will be here to discuss his new book on the life and career of Aboriginal Canadian artist Norval Morrisseau.

The event will be held on Friday, September 16 at 7:30 in the Patrick Power Library, Room LI135.

It is free and open to everyone. And it promises to be a memorable evening.

Funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Reading Series has been running for more than 25 years and has brought many well-known poets and fiction writers to Saint Mary’s during that time.

Watch for these outstanding authors later in the 2016/17 series:
October 3rd: Shane Neilsen & Jim Johnstone
October 18: Elizabeth Hay
November 22: Heather O'Neil
January 19th Lisa Moore
January 27th: Poetry Celebration (new N.S. books by robinson, Faber, Wheaton, Lehr and Dwyer)
