This fall, the Teaching and Curriculum Development Centre (TCDC) will be hosting an in-person book club on Wayi Wah! Indigenous Pedagogies: An Act for Reconciliation and Anti-Racist Education by Jo Chrona.
Book club hosts Shawna Williams (TCDC) and Erin Smith (EDI Office), who are non-Indigenous, white women, are committed to reconciliation and Indigenization in their personal and professional lives, and invite you to join them to learn and grow together. This five-week reading and learning journey will begin on Tuesday, October 3 and end on Tuesday, October 31. Register for the book club through the TCDC Events Calendar.
At the midway point on October 18th, Jo Chrona will be the featured speaker in the Indigenous Speaker Series. We encourage book club participants to sign up for this online event, which will inspire our discussions leading up to and following her talk.
Unlimited e-book access is available through the Langara library and limited hard copies of the book are available through the TCDC library. The book is also available for purchase via Massy Books, Book Warehouse, Chapters, and Amazon.
