Getting tired of life during lockdown?

If so, the celebrated children’s book author and storyteller from Nunavut, Michael Kusugak, is offering some online entertainment this Saturday.

In a virtual event on Zoom, sponsored by the Wabano Centre in Ottawa, Kusugak will offer an Inuit storytelling event that starts at 6 p.m.

Kusugak, 73, grew up in Repulse Bay and now lives in Manitoba.

He’s published 12 books for children, some of which have been translated into French, Japanese, Korean and braille.

His popular book, A Promise is a Promise, co-authored with Robert Munsch in 1988, has been turned into a play that’s been performed many times across Canada and the United States.

Kusugak has won the Ruth Schwartz Award for his book Northern Lights: The Soccer Trails, and has been shortlisted for many others.

To view the event on Zoom, register online through Wabano.

    Editor, please do a better research before publishing. Also, its Naujaat, not Repulse Bay anymore. I highly suggest you do a deeper invest and re-publish.
