Birdie by Tracey Lindberg (2015)

“A big, beautiful Cree woman with a dark secret in her past, Bernice has left her home in northern Alberta to travel to Gibsons, B.C. She is on something of a vision quest, looking for family, for home, for understanding. She is also driven by the leftover teenaged desire to meet Pat Johns--Jesse from The Beachcombers--because he is, as she says, a working, healthy Indian man. Birdie heads for Molly’s Reach to find answers, but they are not the ones she expected…

Birdie is a darkly comic and moving first novel about the universal experience of recovering from wounds of the past, informed by the lore and knowledge of Cree traditions. At heart, it is the story of an extraordinary woman who travels to the deepest part of herself to find the strength to face the past and to build a new life.”

The books are available in the Carl-Schurz-Haus library, or you can also purchase them at the Walthari and Ludwig bookstores or on Amazon. For more information or to register, please contact Léna Remy-Kovach:
