Since joining the bookstagram community, I’ve been asked many times for recommendations of indigenous authors to check out. I’m always happy to, because I absolutely love sharing my favorites and what’s on my shelf waiting to be read. So after much stage fright, I finally did a live video where I discussed authors. I think it went pretty well… even though I was shaking in my boots. I want to thank all my viewers for tuning in and having fun with me. You made it all worth it. Anyways! This is a compilation of all the authors and books that were discussed in the livestream. At the end of the list, you will find a list of memoirs (per the request of Martina, AKA @mamalovestoread on instagram!) If you have any questions about them, definitely shoot me a message on here or at my instagram (@Erins_library). Without further ado… here we go!

“The screech of metal and an airlock venting behind us alerted us to the arrival of the transport. George held me tighter. It was like I was home. But home wasn’t forever. Sometimes you had to leave. I knew that in my heart. I broke away, wiping a stray tear with a callused index finger. Crying was no way to start an adventure.”
