Indigenous writer Ann Doyon slated for Penticton Museum’s Brown Bag lecture series

The Brown Bag Lecture Series features a range of both local and national topics

When Okanagan-based Indigenous writer Ann Doyon steps into the Penticton Museum this month to speak, she hopes that her message will resonate with many.

The idea she hopes to share is that writing your own stories will heal the next generation — and in the case of Doyon, it’s something she’s done for 40 years.

As part of the museum’s Brown Bag Lecture Series, the Regina, SK-born Doyon will present Publishing Indigenous voices for 40 years: Preserving for the sake of handing down on Nov. 9.

Now based in Penticton, the writer will take the stage at the Penticton Museum and Archives both in person and on Zoom from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Attendees planning on watching the lunch-hour event on Zoom are being asked to register beforehand, as capacity will be limited to 25 people.

The Brown Bag Lecture Series has featured a number of fascinating guest speakers in the past. The museum announced recently that previously recorded editions in the series can now be seen on YouTube.

Available episodes include talks from Bill Blair, Karen Collins, Matthias Bieber and Anna Skurikhina on everything from Okanagan snakes, song birds in Vaseux lake to Penticton’s architecture.

The discussions presented by the speakers feature a range of both local and national topics, with a variety of cultural insights.
