Join ITMP's First Book Club Discussion On Monday, April 29th!

Updated: Apr 2

Are you an avid reader? On the search for the next book? Or even looking for a way to pass the time? Then here is the answer for you! Join ITMP’s new book club, where every couple of months we meet to discuss a book written by an Indigenous author and featuring Indigenous topics. 

The book for this term is “The Marrow Thieves” by Cherie Dimaline, a Métis author. This Canadian bestseller tells the story of a not-so-far-away dystopian future where Indigenous Peoples have been hunted and harvested for their bone marrow, the only cure for a disease which has plagued the world and impeded the ability to dream. This novel follows Frenchie, a teenage boy on the run from those targeting him, on his journey not only through the Canadian landscape but also on self-discovery and what it means to be a man and have a family.

Join a discussion group facilitated by a few members of the ITMP Team on April 29th via Zoom at 7pm, as we dive into the meanings behind this book, answer some questions, and find out how much Frenchie’s world applies to our own. All ages are encouraged to attend and share their thoughts with a group of their peers. Groups and questions will be split up by age level (12 and under, 13-17 and 18+) to keep discussion age-appropriate. Please check content warnings for this book as there are some heavier topics covered. To RSVP for this event, please click here

Can’t make it to this one? No worries! There will be a new discussion again in the later months discussing a completely new book with completely new questions and theories. You can keep up-to-date on when the next discussion meet-up will be in ITMP’s monthly newsletter, where future events will be announced!
