    I am encouraged that a cultural dialogue seems to have begun regarding missing and murdered indigenous women and other atrocities. It is my hope that, for some, reading Bearskin Diary might be a starting point toward learning who we are as Canada’s indigenous peoples and reclaiming those roots.”

    - Carol Daniels

    Join Indigenous author and artist Carol Daniels‘s whose novel Bearskin Diary has been selected as the winning title for the 2017–2018 First Nation Communities READ program. Carol will be reading from and discussing her book Bearskin Diary and connecting the book to larger social issues facing all Canadians today. 

    As an author, she felt the responsibility to speak up. It is the reason why the main character in Bearskin Diary is proud, courageous, and resilient. Bearskin Diary tells of an Indigenous girl struggling to reconcile her upbringing in a Ukrainian family with the First Nations culture that was stolen from her in the Sixties Scoop that saw tens of thousands of Indigenous children taken from their families.

    The title was selected by a jury of librarians from First Nation public libraries in Ontario from more than 50 nominated titles.
