The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
51. Voices for Change
HAROLD R. JOHNSON, DANIEL HEATH JUSTICE, CAREY NEWMAN, TANYA TALAGA
Moderator: Shelagh Rogers
Incisive conversation on the role literature plays in Indigenous justice and resurgence and how to write powerfully for change, guest curated by Tanya Talaga and moderated by Shelagh Rogers.
After decades of violence and ignorance in Canada, the country’s media is finally beginning to give Indigenous authors their due. Demonstrating a variety of ways to write for change, Daniel Heath Justice (Why Indigenous Literature Matters), Harold R. Johnson (Peace and Good Order), Carey Newman (Picking Up the Pieces) and Tanya Talaga (Seven Fallen Feathers, All Our Relations) join Shelagh Rogers for a penetrative conversation on the role literature plays in facilitating justice and resurgence, as curated by Talaga. Together, they share knowledge and reflect on the work they see rising to the fore, the stories that most need to be heard, and what comes next. These are the authors holding our country to account; these are the voices that matter.
Presented in partnership with Vancity.
