MPR Builds on the Idea of an Indigenous Book Club Month

Carolyn Bennett, Canada’s Minister for Indigenous and Northern Affairs, came up with the idea of having June be a month where Book Clubs across the country read Indigenous authors (and allies).

Minnesota Public Radio picked up the idea and developed an initial reading list for local Book Clubs to choose from. MPR New Host Tom Weber asked three avid readers to make recommendations: Patina Park, executive director of the Minnesota Indian Woman’s Resource Center; Rhiana Yazzie, a playwright and artistic director of New Native Theatre; and Odia Wood-Krueger, a teacher in the office of Indian Education for Minneapolis Public Schools.

Check out the story to find out their recommendations.
