Pint Sized Conversations w/ANANSI
October 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This month we are chatting with Tanya Talaga about her new book, Seven Fallen Feathers.
Tanya is our first returning writer, after chatting about the Break last year. She is the Star’s Global Economics reporter, covering world financial and geo-political issues.
She has been nominated five times for the Governor General’s Michener Award in public service journalism. In 2015, she was part of a team that won a National Newspaper Award for a year-long project on Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls. She was also on a team that won a 2013 National Newspaper Award for a series on the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh. Tanya’s grandmother is Ojibwe, a member of Fort William First Nation, and her mother was raised off-reserve by her grandmother, a residential school survivor from Kenora.
