Author David A. Robertson speaks about truth and representation

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

The Indigenous Speakers Series presented award-winning graphic novelist and writer David A. Robertson on Wednesday, March 13. He spoke about how he uses his work to educate and entertain, and how reconcilation begins with conversations, with asking questions, listening and learning. “We need to do better. I'm using the word 'we' here because we are in this together. Reconciliation is an all hands on deck thing."

Watch the full Indigenous Speakers Series presentation by David Robertson.

Robertson's books include When We Were Alone (Governor General’s Literary Award winner, McNally Robinson Best Book for Young People winner, TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award finalist), Will I See? (Manuela Dias Book Design and Illustration Award, Graphic Novel Category), and the novel Strangers (Michael Van Rooy Award for Genre Fiction, Best Indigenous Writer at the High Plains Book Awards).
