Yesterday I went to a two hour workshop held by my local library and presented by Itah Sadu. It was a workshop on storytelling, and throughout Itah held everyone's attention! You couldn't look away, and I'll never forget how wonderful she was at including everyone in the process.
If you ever get the chance to meet her, hear her or go to her bookstore in Toronto, please do. You'd regret not going if you had ever met her. Below will be two links. One to her bookstore (A Different Booklist) and another to a Youtube of her speaking about her sense of belonging in Canada.
