About the Event

FREE | 16+

For June Book Club, Eshe Merce-James invites you to look at variations on folklore as examples of cultural connections across borders and oceans. As a group, we are reading 4 to 5 stories about different Central American folkloric tricksters, with a focus on characters who are building or defending a home, connecting home and land together. Eshe is keeping a surprise reading for the group, exploring a Breb Rabbit story. Join us on Tuesday June 18th for a beautiful evening with Eshe!

Eshe Mercer-James has taught literature courses at both York and Trent Universities, and also works with the Canadian Language Museum. Her PhD dissertation, Framing Standard and Dialect in Black Women’s Novels (2021), was nominated for the Mary McEwan Memorial Award, a prize for feminist scholarship. She is excited to share her passion for literature with the Jamii community!

As part of the Tuesday Learning Workshop Series, the Book Club is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, Toronto Arts Council, Metcalf Foundation, Rama Gaming House, and Charitable Gaming.
