Birdie chosen for nationwide Canada Reads program

Lindberg’s novel centers around Bernice Meetoos, a young Cree woman from Northern Alberta, who leaves her community and travels to British Columbia on a physical, and internal, journey. Although the book is fictional and not based off of Lindberg, who is an As’in’i’wa’chi Ni’yaw Nation Rocky Mountain Cree woman herself hailing from the Kelly Lake Cree Nation community in Alberta, she says that she has drawn from her life for inspiration for it.
