The Winnipeg International Writers Festival has teamed up with co-presenters McNally Robinson Booksellers to celebrate Indigenous writing in Canada as part of our Voices in the Circle initiative.

In his debut memoir, From the Ashes: My Story of Being Métis, Homeless, and Finding My Way (Simon & Schuster), Jesse Thistle, once a high school dropout and now a rising Indigenous scholar, chronicles his life on the streets and how he overcame trauma and addiction to discover the truth about who he is. He’ll be discussing his memoir with host Rosanna Deerchild of Unreserved on CBC Radio One.
