Turning the Tide is responding to a call to action from Idle No More and Defenders of the Land to mark Canada's 150th birthday by educating ourselves and our community about the history of colonization.
We will be reading Arthur Manuel's book "Unsettling Canada: A National Wake-Up Call" as part of the "Canada Reads: The Unsettling of Canada Edition"
Throughout June and July, we will be offering the book at a 20% discount at our Saskatoon and Regina locations and on our online bookstore (purchase here). We will also have sponsored copies available for loan.
Gatherings will be held in both Saskatoon and Regina to discuss the book and we encourage people to hold book clubs across the Northern territories of Turtle Island known as "Canada."
We also challenge and encourage other bookstores across the country to promote this campaign by ordering copies of the book and holding discussion groups locally.
