Welcome to Overdue Finds, an Edmonton Public Library podcast. Bryce Crittenden and Caroline Land will be hosting conversations about movies, music, books, pretty much any sort of popular culture and media you can think of and likely some you’ve never thought of. We’re hoping you’ll learn more about what you can find at the library.

Feb 12, 2021

On this week's Overdue Finds, Bryce and Caroline talk with Anna Alfonso, EPL's Director of Marketing, Communications and Fund Development, all about what it's like to host a big speakers series event during a pandemic. Then we finally air our interview with award-winning journalist Tanya Talaga, whose event with EPL was rescheduled from last year and will be taking place on March 10, 2021. Plus: #PetsofEPL, power couples, and poetry.

Don't forget to check out our list of all the titles that we talk about on this episode. 

You can see Tanya Talaga's virtual Forward Thinking Speaker Series presentation on Wednesday, March 10. Tanya will share her in-depth knowledge on Indigenous history and culture, and will leave attendees with a hopeful message about learning from our past and moving forward. Tickets for All Our Relations: Finding the Path Forward are only $5. 

Tickets are also available for Irshad Manji: Moral Courage for Messy Times on February 18, 2021. What does it mean to have moral courage and how can we listen instead of label?

This event is presented in partnership with Peter Lougheed Leadership College, and with assistance from Mercier & Mercier National Bank FinancialEdmonton Shift LabEdify and Calgary Public Library.
