About the Book

Glass Beads is by Saskatchewan-born Plains Cree author, actor, and comedian Dawn Dumont. It's an engaging collection of interconnected short stories about four First Nations people, set against a backdrop of two decades of political, social, and cultural change.


About One eRead Canada

One eRead Canada is organized by the Canadian urban Libraries Council/Conseil des Bibliotheques Urbaines du Canada (CULC/CBUC), the organization behind the eContent for Libraries campaign. Libraries are facing very high costs for ebooks and eaudiobooks, and some titles aren't available to libraries at all. With this campaign, CULC wants to show that libraries introduce readers to new books, which actually helps to drive sales to publishers.


 About Thistledown Press

Glass Beads' publisher, Thistledown Press, is an independent Canadian publisher that is taking an active role in making eContent more accessible to the public, in partnership with public libraries.
