Episode 048: The Death of Vivek Oji

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.
