On June 26, the Centre for Research in Young People’s Texts and Cultures is hosting a panel discussion about the development of Pīsim Finds Her Miskanow, a collaborative picture book about the life of Kayasochi Kikawenow, Our Mother from Long Ago, a young Cree woman who lived in northern Manitoba during the proto-Contact period.

The panel discussion will take place from 7:30PM to 9:00PM in Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall at the University of Winnipeg, and it will feature some of the collaborators, including Kevin Brownlee (Manitoba Museum), William Dumas (Storyteller), Leonard Paul (Illustrator), Deborah Schnitzer (U of Winnipeg), and Mavis Reimer (U of Winnipeg). A reception will follow.
