Turning the Tide Reading in Saskatoon, August 19th, 2015

August 10, 2015

I am so excited to be reading with Dawn Dumont at Turning the Tide Bookstore in Saskatoon on August 19th, 2015. Dawn has two books with Thistledown Press, Nobody Cries at Bingo and Rose's Run. Here is her bio taken from Thistledown's website....

"Dawn Dumont is a Plains Cree comedian and actor born and raised in Saskatchewan, Canada. She says of her reservation, the Okanese First Nation, that it  is "quite possibly the smallest reservation in the world but what it doesn’t have in terms of land area, the people make up for in sheer head size". Dawn has made people laugh at comedy clubs across North American, including New York’s Comic Strip, the New York Comedy Club, and the Improv. She began her comedy career in Toronto on stages such as Yuk Yuk’s and the Laugh Resort. Dawn is currently a comedy writer for CBC Radio and the Edmonton Journal, and is a Story Editor for By the Rapids, an animation comedy series on APTN.

Her writing has been published in the anthologies Native Women in the Artsand Gatherings, as well as in Rampage Literary Journal. Her personal essay “Transformations” was published by Toronto’s Now Magazine. Most recently her play, Nicimis (Little Brother) was workshopped at Native Earth’s Performing Arts Weesageechak Begins to Dance Festival in Toronto, with artistic director Alanis King. Dumont lives in Edmonton, Alberta."
