Chelsea Vowel's book Buffalo is the New Buffalo "explore(s) radical possibilities for Indigenous resilience" (Quill and Quire). We selected this book of stories of "Metis futurism" as a celebration of Canadian Indigenous writing and storytelling.
The library aims to create community for faculty, staff, and students in an open discussion space this summer. We have chosen this book of short stories as it will enable interested participants to come in for any number of the sessions, creating inclusive and flexible possibilities for those who are on campus for part or all of the summer to engage with each other.
We have chosen four dates between now and the end of August to gather in the library to discuss the book. Bring your lunch along. The library will also provide some snacks.
Thursday July 6th, 11:30am - 1pm
Thursday July 20th, 11:30am - 1pm
Thursday August 3rd, 11:30am - 1pm
Thursday August 17th, 11:30am - 1pm
The eBook is available through the library for all current students, staff and faculty.
Through a Faculty of Culture + Community micro-grant, we were able to purchase a small amount of paperback copies to distribute. Please let us know if you'd like one using the registration page (link below).
