Welcome, Dear Readers.

You are listening to Time to Read, a Winnipeg Public Library podcast book club.  We are recording today from the Millennium Library, located in Treaty One Territory, the home and traditional lands of the Anishinaabe (Ojibwe), Ininew (Cree), and Dakota peoples, and in the National Homeland of the Red River Métis.  Our drinking water comes from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, in Treaty Three Territory.

We are discussing Dawn by Octavia Butler.

Creators and Guests

Dennis Penner
Dennis Penner
Dennis works in the ideaMILL and while he prefers mysteries and non-fiction, he’s open to reading almost anything. He’s also the editor/producer, so he can edit the show to make himself sound smarter than he really is.
Toby Cygman
Toby Cygman
Toby is an Outreach Librarian and recovering book snob. She mostly reads literary fiction but has been known to dabble in non-fiction and the genres.
Trevor Lockhart
Trevor Lockhart
Trevor is the Branch Head of the Louis Riel library. He tends to be a slow reader but a fast talker, so it all evens out.
