"It’s such a great opportunity to be the inaugural writer for the Aboriginal literature residency. I really see it as a tremendous beginning for a partnership between the Aboriginal literary community and the busiest library system in the world."
"We are the people of story and the library, in this context, is the keeper of stories for the wider population. I think its a tremendous gift to the people of Toronto for the library to dedicate a residency program where Lee Maracle, Susan Blight, Giles Benaway and other incredible storytellers are involved. It opens up the beauty and expertise of Indigenous story to a whole multicultural city."
