Vancouver Public Library ASL Interpreted Presentations


The Vancouver Public Library is pleased to offer ASL interpretation for two upcoming literary events at the Central Library.

Wednesday, November 15th @ 7 p.m.

Louise Bernice Halfe & Joanne Arnott

In Burning in This Midnight Dream poet Louise Bernice Halfe records her journey to reconnect with her Cree heritage, and to reconcile her own connections to a legacy of colonization and residential schools.

Joanne Arnott, a local Métis/mixed heritage writer and arts activist, will share the stage. Arnott’s Halfling Spring explores how people’s deepest connections unveil depths of pain and identity.

With moderator Angela Sterritt, CBC reporter and award-winning Gitxsan journalist.
