The province of Saskatchewan has proclaimed March 2021 has One Book, One Province month. 
One Book, One Province aims to increase literacy and to create a reading culture by providing opportunities for residents to become more socially engaged in their community through a shared story.

The book selected for 2021 is Blanket Toss Under Midnight Sun by Paul Seesequasis. The book is a collection of eight Indigenous communities from across North America, shown through never-before-published archival photographs – an extension of Paul Seesequasis’ popular social media project, which saw Seesequasis collect archival photos capturing everyday life in First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities from the 1920s through the 1970s. Blanket Toss Under Midnight Sun collects some of the most powerful images and stories from his project.

Paul Seesequasis has videotaped four readings that will be released individually and weekly throughout the month of March - visit the Saskatchewan Library Association website for more information. ​
