About the author

Cherie Dimaline

Cherie Dimaline, is a Toronto-based writer of the Georgian Bay Métis Nation. Her "young adult" novel The Marrow Thieves (2017) speaks vividly to present day injustices through a vision of a dystopian future, and was awarded a Governor General's Award for English-language children's literature, as well as the prestigious Kirkus Prize (US $50,000) in the young adult literature category. Her first novel, Red Rooms (2011) won the Anskohk Aboriginal Literature Festival, and she was named Emerging Artist of the Year at the Ontario Premier's Awards for Excellence in Arts in 2014. She is also the author of two recent novels, The Girl Who Grew a Galaxy (2013) and A Gentle Habit (2015). She is the founding editor of Muskrat Magazine, an online indigenous publication focusing on sovereignty, culture and the celebration of community excellence, and served as the first indigenous writer-in-residence for the Toronto Public Library in 2014-2015. Ms. Dimaline is well-known for her eagerness to work with young writers, and for her abiding interest in "community," which is, she has said, "where my stories come from and . . . also where my responsibilities lie."
