December Virtual Book Club – Gather: Richard Van Camp on the Joy of Storytelling
Wednesday, December 27, 7:00pm 

Looking to expand your reading list and discuss a variety of issues and topics important to Native people? Please join our virtual book club, As They Speak: Native Voices in Today’s Literature. Based on a variety of topics and featuring a range of genres, all of the books we will be reading have been written by contemporary authors. This month, we’ll be reading Gather: Richard Van Camp on the Joy of Storytelling. In this unique anthology, master storyteller and bestselling author Richard Van Camp (Tlicho Dene First Nation) writes of the power of storytelling and its potential to transform both the speaker and the audience. Van Camp shares what elements make a compelling story and offers insights into basic storytelling techniques and delves further into the impact storytelling can have, helping readers understand how to create community and how to banish loneliness through their tales. Van Camp includes stories from Elders whose wisdom influenced him. Join the conversation hosted by IAIS Staff on Zoom.
