She’s a celebrated author and mother who brings the wisdom of her Cree, Lakota, and Scottish roots to everything she does. Now, the award-winning Monique Gray Smith returns with the sequel to her semi-autobiographical 2013 novel, Tilly. In Tilly and the Crazy Eights, the title heroine finds herself on the road with eight elders as they journey to Albuquerque for the Gathering of Nations Pow Wow. Sparkling with humour, pain, hope, and resilience, their story will open eyes to the richness of First Peoples culture and the challenges that lie ahead.
With an author who doubles as an international speaker, this is sure to be a powerful launch. We can’t wait!
