Enter the world of Misewa with David A. Robertson. David Robertson is a Winnipeg-based Cree author for children. In his middle-grade fantasy series, Morgan and Eli are Indigenous children who discover a portal at their foster home to another world, Askī; there they discover talking animal beings who connect them to traditional ways, as well as help them deal with the challenges in the real world. A fantasy for readers aged ten and up, the highly acclaimed Misewa Saga series reflects stories of the sky and the constellations held within its great canvas.

The Limestone Learning Foundation is pleased to present this exclusive virtual author's visit for LDSB students in Grades 5 - 8 on Thursday, April 28, 2022, as part of the Books are Back initiative.

The titles in this initiative offer contemporary stories by LGBTQ+ authors and BIPOC authors that will spark empathy and understanding about equity, inclusion and resilience. 

The Foundation looks forward to continuing the virtual author visits to support students grow their love of reading, and provide windows into perspectives and lived experiences of others.
