Thanks for joining us! This month we are discussing The Death of Vivek Oji by Akwaeke Emezi.
Welcome dear readers, you are listening to Time to Read, a Winnipeg Public Library podcast book club. We are recording today from the Carol Shields auditorium in the Millennium Library, located on Treaty One, the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree and Dakota as well as the birthplace of the Métis Nation and the heart of the Métis Homeland. Our drinking water comes from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation in Treaty Three territory.
MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE
Our Reading Resolutions:
Dennis will try to read something just for fun this year. Will it be Ice Planet Barbarians?? or some cozy mysteries?
Toby resolves to read a classic: Don Quixote!
Trevor resolves (again!) to read a Carol Shields novel, and is also looking forward to Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel and the new Tom Perotta.
NERD WORDS FOR WORD NERDS
