We round out the autumn Books & Brews book club with a wonderful selection titled ‘Volkswagen Blues‘ on our last Books & Brews podcast episode of 2017. The 1980s novel by Jacques Poulin (translated to English by Sheila Fischman) tackles colonialism, Quebecois national identity, and Canadian and American Indigenous-Settler history.
Our podcast episode features a nice little discussion of the themes found in the book and what they mean to us as museum professionals. It also features a discussion with Professor Dr. Danny Samson, a faculty member of the Department of History at Brock University.
We hope you enjoy this episode.
