W’daub Awae: Speaking True—a Kegedonce Press anthology—brings together some of Canada’s strongest and best loved voices on the Indigenous writing scene. Edited by award-winning writer Warren Cariou, it includes new writing by: Gregory Scofield, Richard Van Camp, Marilyn Dumont, Al Hunter, Joanne Arnott, Daniel Heath Justice and many of your other favourite Kegedonce Press authors.

“This anthology is a celebration of those extraordinary successes that Kegedonce has had since 1993, and of the pivotal role it has played in the recent history of Canada’s [Indigenous] literature. But for me, W’daub Awae is equally a pointer toward the future, a sign of the incredible diversity and vividness and powerful language that we can look forward to from Kegedonce in the years to come. Each piece represented here is only one small part of the extraordinary work that all of these writers will continue to produce in the future.” —Excerpt from Warren Cariou’s introduction.”
