Unsettling Ideas is a book club aimed at creating discourse, generating ideas and raising awareness to the 94 Calls to Action released one year ago from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada to the general public.
There will be 10 monthly gatherings from September 2016 to June 2017 – each rooted in one (or more) title(s) paired to a Call to Action. Each month will feature a speaker, author, or community member who will offer thoughts and facilitate a discussion for those present to engage with the work itself, the particular call to action, and broader themes of decolonization and reconciliation.
We will announce each title with enough notice and information for interested participants to get their hands on a copy and participate in online discussions. At month’s end, participants will have the opportunity to attend a group session (location TBD). The group sessions are entirely free to attend. Attend one or attend them all!
This is a shared project of the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild, Knox-Metropolitan United Church and Turning the Tide bookstore.
