Reading for Reconciliation

About this event

Learn + Connect: Reading for Reconciliation, invites participants to a monthly book club series focused on the recently released Okanagan Women’s Voices Syilx and Settler Writing and Relations, 1870s to 1960s. Okanagan Women’s Voices collects Syilx and settler women’s writing and storytelling, much of it discovered in local archives and not previously published. It includes life writing, such as correspondence, journals, and memoirs, as well as translations of Syilx captikʷł (traditional stories), popular history, poetry, drama and fiction. Facilitated by local author and Museum Curator, Laisha Rosnau, online discussions will focus on each of the three parts as follows:

Part I - April 21, 2022

Part II - May 19, 2022

Part III - June 16, 2022
