Tilly and the Crazy Eights

Since winning the 2014 Burt Award for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Literature for Tilly: A Story of Hope and Resilience, Cree-Lakota-Scottish writer Monique Gray Smith has published three children’s books and produced the podcast Love Is Medicine. All these projects underscore themes of hope and resilience that continue with Tilly and the Crazy Eights, a sequel of sorts to Smith’s first book.
