To enter, cast your vote on a selection of five books chosen by our esteemed guest panelists: Carolyn Hepburn, Elizabeth Edgar-Webkamigad, Mitch Case, Waubgeshig Rice, and Zoey Wood-Salomon. Click https://ssmpl.ca/programs-events/first-nations-public-library-week/ to vote today!

As part of the contest, the public is also encouraged to read a chapter of the book Why Indigenous Literatures Matter by Daniel Heath Justice.

The contest winner will receive an Indigenous-themed prize pack and will be announced on October 29, 2020.
