Our Stories: Indigenous Book Club


This new monthly online series highlights recently published works from Indigenous authors across Turtle Island, including poetry, fiction, memoirs and plays.  With Our Stories: Indigenous Book Club, we hope to expose Indigenous and non-Indigenous readers alike to diverse perspectives in the Indigenous community.

Each month will feature a different title.  



We will include reflection questions related to the book of the month. We encourage you to enter your reflections in the comments section below to share them with other readers. 

At the end of the month, join us for a live-streamed conversation with the author.  

Also follow NAC’s Facebook Event to participate in the conversation.

January’s title is bug, a play by Yolanda Bonnell.  Join us online on January 27 at 7 pm as we connect with Yolanda Bonnell.  

Our Stories: Indigenous Book Club is made possible by a partnership between the Indigenous Theatre at the National Arts Centre and the Ottawa Public Library.

With thanks to Friends of the Ottawa Public Library for their support.
