“If you love Indigenous books (especially fiction) as much as we do, then join us, Waubgeshig Rice and Jennifer David, as we talk ‘all things Indigenous books’.  Each episode, we bring in a guest host (an Indigenous author), and we discuss one book. We laugh, we tell stories, we get animated, we debate, we discuss. We always support and promote First Nations, Inuit and Métis authors and their books. Read the books, listen to the episodes (they contain spoilers!) and join in the conversations about the Storykeepers. Check out our social media feeds for giveaways and a chance to interact with the hosts. See the Indigenous Bookshelf for ideas on where to get a copy of these books.
