Anti-Racism Book Discussion

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

ESG’s Anti-Racism choir group is holding a book discussion on Tuesday, February 22nd at 7 pm on zoom. All are welcome to join in for a discussion of Michelle Good’s Five Little Indians.

“Winner of the 2018 HarperCollins/UBC Prize for Best New Fiction Michelle Good’s FIVE LITTLE INDIANS, told from the alternating points of view of five former residential school students as they struggle to survive in 1960s Vancouver—one finding her way into the dangerous world of the American Indian movement; one finding unexpected strength in motherhood; and one unable to escape his demons – and the bonds of friendship that sustain them, inspired by the author’s experiences.” (Goodreads)

If you are interested in joining us for this (free) book discussion, please contact Maggie Wilkinson.  The zoom link will be sent to you ahead of the event.

Five Little Indians is available through the public library, or for purchase on Amazon, Indigo, or independent Indigenous book purveyor Good Minds.
