Eden Robinson

This week, Post Everything features a guest interview from CFUV programmer Alicia Lawrence with Canadian author Eden Robinson.

Eden Robinson was born in Kitamaat, British Columbia and is a member of the Haisla and Heiltsuk First Nations. She studied Creative Writing at both the University of British Columbia and the University of Victoria and published her first book, a collection of short stories titled Trapline,  in 1995. She followed up with two novels, Monkey Beach in 2000 and Bloodsports in 2006.  Her latest book, Sasquatch at Home: Traditional Protocols & Modern Storytelling, is a non-fiction look at family, culture, and place. Eden Robinson has become one of Canada’s first female Native writers to gain international attention.

Alicia spoke with her about her publications and what it is to be a Native writer in Canada. Listen below!

 

Until next time!
