Join libraries across Canada in creating an opportunity for people across the country to read one book together and share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. It will run for four weeks, from June 3 to June 30.
Glass Beads by Dawn Dumont
The selection for our inaugural program is Glass Beads by Dawn Dumont, published by Thistledown Press. Recognizing and supporting our national focus on reconciliation and the Indigenous experience, it seemed appropriate that our first book is written by an Indigenous woman. We also chose to feature a book from an independent Canadian publisher.

Dawn Dumont, the author of Glass Beads, has agreed to work with Saskatoon Public Library to offer an online event as part of the One eRead Canada program.
The event will be open for in-person attendees at the Saskatoon Library and simultaneously live streamed on Facebook.
The event will be a public book discussion with Dawn about Glass Beads; a Saskatoon librarian (Jenny) will host and interview Dawn.
Previous to the event, libraries will solicit questions from the public for Dawn through social media. Jenny will pose these questions to Dawn throughout the event, interspersed with in-person attendees’ questions.
Libraries can encourage readers to submit questions using social media and the hashtags #1eReadLivrelCanada and #Question. Sample posts:
- #1eReadLivrelCanada starts today. Join the conversation. Ask questions with #question
- #1eReadLivrelCanada @dawndumont’s Glass Beads. Join us for a Facebook live author event on June 12th [5pm BC, 6pm SK, 8pm ON]. Submit your question with #question
