READ INDIGENOUS: Making space for Indigenous Authors

October 1, 2018

Recently, All Lit Up got an exciting new addition: Indigenous Litspace, a site that highlights the ever-growing list of Indigenous authors and books we're lucky enough to read, talk about, and share with you. To make more space for these incredible and essential writers, we're showcasing work by Indigenous authors across all genres—from fiction to poetry to drama to non-fiction—all October long. We'll share excerpts from all of the featured books so you can sample a variety of work and discover new authors. Scroll down to see what's coming up this month.
