Village Books


Study Canada K-12 is thrilled to partner with Métis Canadian illustrator Natasha Donovan and Village Books for a special presentation of the graphic novel Borders on Tuesday, June 28th at 4 pm. Every registered attendee will also receive a FREE copy of the book. Registration is free but space is limited so register here. 

In Borders, this graphic adaptation of award-winning author Thomas King's [The Inconvenient Indian, The Truth About Stories] short story, a young Blackfoot boy and his mother end up in a no-man's land between the US and Canadian borders when his mother refuses to answer a seemingly simple question: "Are you American? Or are you Canadian?". In a story told with King's characteristic wit, readers are invited to consider themes of place, nationality, family, Indigenous Sovereignty, and home.

She illustrates the award-winning children's book series The Mothers of Xsan, written by Brett Huson. Her recent picture books include A River's Gifts by Patricia Newman and The Global Ocean by Rochelle Strauss. She grew up in Vancouver and currently lives in Bellingham.
