In this episode I chat with award winning, super cool, fun to hang out with inspirational author, writer, storyteller, Katherena Vermette. Katherena, a Red River Métis (Michif) writer from Treaty 1 territory, the heart of the Métis Nation. She has worked in poetry, novels, children’s literature, and film.
Her first book, North End Love Songs, also her debut novel won the Governor General's Literary Award for poetry, and her debut novel, The Break, was a finalist for the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize and the Governor General's Literary Award for fiction. Her most recent novel, The Strangers, is another must-read!
I welcome our listeners to our conversation, as Katherena shares beautiful and intriguing stories about her life as a writer, mother, mentor and much more. It was truly an incredible experience to sit and share space with Katherena Vermette at the Banff Centre for Arts, in Blackfoot territory, where we met!
