The BLGC BOOK CLUB continues on November 23rd from 7pm - 8:30pm. BOOK CLUB is a monthly online hang out, where we discuss Canadian authors and get in some socializing.
This BOOK CLUB, we will be finishing Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson and discussing.
Eden Robinson is one of Canada’s exceptional Indigenous writers. She captures our attention with this absorbing coming of age story. It takes us into a community and family that both suffer tragedy and magical realism with wry humour. It is both dark and uplifting with its blending of normalized violence, Native myth and wit. It is the first in the series of a humorous dark trilogy.
Content Warnings for Son of a Trickster: drug and alcohol use; family dynamics; historical and current trauma relating to Indigenous people in Canada; normalized violence
