Award-winning and bestselling Anishinaabe author Tanya Talaga launches her new book, The Knowing, in a special Koerner Hall event co-presented with RamsayTalks.

Deeply personal and meticulously researched, The Knowing is a seminal unravelling of the centuries-long oppression of Indigenous People that continues to reverberate in these communities today. Talaga retells the history of Canada as only she can - through an Indigenous lens, beginning with the life of her great-great grandmother Annie Carpenter and her family as they experienced decades of government - and Church - sanctioned enfranchisement and genocide.

Ms. Talaga will discuss her book, The Knowing, participate in an interview, and answer questions from the audience.

Through her best-selling books, acclaimed documentaries and podcasts, her Globe and Mail columns and powerful lectures (including The 2018 CBC Massey Lecture), Talaga amplifies Indigenous voices and stories across Canada and the world. She offers audiences her deep knowledge of Indigenous culture and history, humanizing the legacy of colonization and offering hope for a more equitable future.
