Award-winning journalist, author and CBC Massey Lecturer Tanya Talaga’s Seven Fallen Feathers investigated the startling deaths of seven Indigenous students in Thunder Bay, Canada. Her research has won prestigious awards and, perhaps most importantly, garnered widespread public awareness. In a 2019 conversation with Jael Richardson, Talaga discusses these difficult but necessary investigations, the challenge of writing for change and how she continues to find hope while confronting the hardest of truths. Listen in to this special episode of Vancouver Writers Fest’s Books & Ideas Audio series.


Presented by the Vancouver Writers Fest, located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
