Way back in June 2021, the Network in Canadian History and Environment hosted a night of Storytime for the Apocalypse, a regular virtual storytime for adults established in April 2020 by Dr. Tilly Hinton. It is “a hopeful, frank, uplifting, and nurturing hour for interesting people to read beautiful published writing out loud to one another.” The next storytime will be September 6th, and you can register here.
In June, four of our members read excerpts of Canadian literature related to environmental apocalypse.
- Jessica DeWitt, read from Son of a Trickster by Eden Robinson
- Heather Green, read from The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline
- Sara Spike, read from “The Closing Down of Summer” by Alistair MacLeod
- Andrew Watson, read from Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
You can now listen to the full evening of storytelling and conversation on YouTube:
