Drew Hayden Taylor, humorist, playwright and author recently found out he’s one of the Canadians to receive the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal this year.
The medal is being awarded by the Governor General’s Office to Canadians who exemplify community spirit during the year Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 60th year on the throne.
Drew Hayden Taylor is currently working on a sequel to his play The Berlin Blues, which sold out at 4th Line Theatre last year, and has received a grant from Telefilm to write a screenplay for a film adaptation, which is underway.
Last evening at Vancouver Community College (Clark campus), about 130 people celebrated the launch of the book They Called Me Number One, which is currently in second place on the BC Bestsellers list.Wednesday May 22, 2013 in Meta-Talon

Joanne Arnott interviews Wanda John-Kehewin about her new book In the Dog House:
I can’t really say there were many poets of the past that influenced my writing. I think when I really started to be inspired was when I heard that there were other Native writers, and that wasn’t until I moved to the West Coast in 1991. For some reason I didn’t think it was actually something an “Indian” could do. There weren’t any books in the library that were by First Nations people when I was growing up.
