Reading with Daniel Paul, author of Chief Lightning Bolt
October 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Author Daniel Paul
Chief Lightning Bolt
Please join Author Daniel Paul as he reads from his first novel, Chief Lightning Bolt, a life’s journey set in pre-contact Mi’kmaq territory. Rather than telling a collision-of-cultures story, Paul shows readers the beautiful, vibrant culture that was lost to colonization. The novel follows Lightning Bolt’s upbringing and rise to leader for his people, and shows readers the ceremonies, traditions, and teachings of the Mi’kmaw people. Daniel Paul is also the author of We Were Not The Savages, a Mi’kmaw History of the Colonial Period in Mi’kmaw Territory.
In partnership with Fernwood Press and Presented in partnership with Scotiabank
