Mi’kmaq stories unearthed
Author-editor Peter Sanger, working with translator Elizabeth Paul and illustrator Alan Syliboy, brings to light a pair of texts — tales from the first nation’s distant past

Sun. Nov 4 – 7:33 AM

“FINDING these two lost Mi’kmaq texts is the equivalent in our culture of finding a new play by Shakespeare.”

Peter Sanger has his listeners’ full attention as he speaks these words. We’re in a room of the Vaughn Library at Acadia University, where Gaspereau Press is launching its newest book. The Stone Canoe: Two Lost Mi’kmaq Texts is described as a story about two stories and their travels through the written record.
