Come to the t7ikw (fire), Readings with Gary Gottfriedson and Chris Bose, is being offered to everyone interested online via BigBlueButton.

Hosted by the Decolonizing, Reconciliation and Indigenization Committee, this one-hour speakers event features two noted writers reading from their works.

Gary Gottfriedson is from Kamloops, with strong roots in his Secwépemc cultural teachings. He has a Master of Arts Education degree from Simon Fraser University. He was awarded a creative writing scholarship at the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado, where he studied under Allen Ginsberg, Marianne Faithful and others. He has published 10 books and has read his work at events across Canada, the US, South America, New Zealand, Europe and Asia. Gottfriedson’s work pulls no punches in unveiling the truth of Canada’s treatment of First Nations Peoples. His work has been anthologized and published nationally and internationally. He currently works at TRU.

Chris Bose is a writer, multi-disciplinary artist, musician, curator and filmmaker who has read and performed at universities, theatres and coffee houses from Victoria to Montreal. He is of the Secwépemc and Nlaka’pamux nations and is currently based in Kamloops.
