We are excited to kick off Summer Reading Club by hosting professional Haida storyteller and author Kung Jaadee!

At this virtual event, Kung Jaadee will read from her book Raven’s Feast, share songs and hold a regalia show and tell. There will be a Q & A at the end.

To register, email kids@virl.bc.ca. The event will be held on Zoom.

Over the past 28 years, Kung Jaadee has performed traditional Haida legends, while also sharing vivid personal stories about her clan’s survival of the smallpox epidemic, and  the history and culture of her people. She has performed at hundreds of festivals, schools and Aboriginal celebrations across Canada. She is the author of  the popular children’s books, Raven’s Feast and Gifts from Raven (selected as a Local BC Book to Read), as well as curriculum textbooks, Haida Nation: Indigenous Communities in Canada and We Are Home. Her stories have also been published in several anthologies, magazines and online publications. Most recently, Kung Jaadee worked as the Vancouver Public Library’s Indigenous Storyteller in Residence.
