This season, we’re doing things a bit different. Instead of interviews, for Season 3, we are hosting an online book club!

A HUGE thanks to our sponsors (logos below):

Episode 2: Split Tooth by Tanya Tagaq

It’s book club time! Put on some coffee and join our conversation about Split Tooth by Tanya Tagaq. 

Content warning: Readers should know that Split Tooth is a work of staggering beauty and originality that also engages with extremely challenging subjects, including childhood sexual abuse. We have some mental health resources listed on our website.

Keep the conversation going! We want to hear what you think. Join us on Twitter – @book_women or @IndigenousLSA. Use the #BookWomen. Email us @BookWomenPodcast at, or by leaving a comment on the book club announcement on our website,

We still have some books and some beautiful Indigenous swag to give away, so don’t be afraid to let us know what you think!
