Children’s author Danielle Daniel is the next guest speaker at the Burlington Public Library’s Ask the Author series.

Daniel is an award-winning author and illustrator of settler and Indigenous ancestry.

She has written two novels, Forever Birchwood, a middle grade novel set in her northern hometown and Daughters of the Deer, a historical fiction novel inspired by the lives of her ancestors, an Algonquin woman and a soldier/settler from France, and their first born daughter who was murdered by French settlers.

Her picture books include Sometimes I Feel Like a Fox, winner of the Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award and a Best 100 title at the New York Public Library, Once in a Blue Moon, and You Hold Me Up (illustrator) shortlisted for the 2018 Marilyn Baillie Award, among other honours.

She was born and raised in the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek, also known as Sudbury, which has greatly shaped and inspired her work.

A former elementary school teacher, Daniel now writes stories for children and adults and lives on Manitoulin Island with her family.

Her virtual talk is Saturday, June 18, from 11 a.m. to noon. To register and send in a question, visit the library website.
