The Write Stuff - Tracey Lindberg

Tracey Lindberg is a Canadian writer and academic, and was the first Canadian Aboriginal woman to complete her graduate law degree at Harvard. She hails from the Kelly Lake Cree Nation community in North Western Alberta where she still lives. She is an award winning academic writer, and teaches Indigenous studies and Indigenous law at Athabasca University and the University of Ottawa.
Birdie, her debut novel, is  darkly comic and moving. At it’s heart it is the story of an extraordinary woman who travels to the deepest part of herself, to find the strength to face the past and build a new life.It is part quest and part travelogue. Birdie has been chosen for Canada Reads 2016 and the library has a copy. Click here to visit her online.
