“We are beyond excited to host this unique and gifted storyteller for what promises to be an enchanting and thoughtful evening,” said Patrick Siebold, Haida Gwaii library branches manager.

“Kung Jaadee’s ability to make her stories meaningful and accessible to people of every age has helped her become one of our country’s preeminent Indigenous storytellers. Because we’re hosting this event virtually, anyone with Internet access can participate. It’s going to be a great night.”
