Jodie Callaghan is from the Mi’gmaq First Nation in Gespe’gewa’gi (Quebec). She started writing stories when she was 8 years old and has always been drawn to story-telling as the best way to connect to her history and her culture. Ga’s/The Train, tells the story of Ashley, who meets her great-uncle by the old train tracks near their community. Uncle tells her that during his childhood, the train took away with it, something infinitely important. Jodie joins us all the way from her home in Northern New Brunswick, to read from Ga’/The Train. She’ll share stories of what inspired her to write this book and she’ll answer your questions about it.
