New children’s book about butterflies by local author Dorothy Ladd to launch at BCM&CC March 16th

Dorothy Ladd, a local Indigenous author, will launch her new book about Monarch butterflies on March 16th from 10 AM to 2 PM at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre.  

Ladd’s new book, titled “Memengwaa, The Monarch Butterfly,” explores the deep connection between Ojibwe beliefs and the winged creatures, with scientific facts about the butterfly lifecycle and migration. The book features both the English and Ojibwe text, translated by Marilyn Roote, and is beautifully illustrated by local Anishinaabe-kwe artist Jeannette Ladd. 

The event is open to the public and the book will be available for purchase and book signing by the author. The launch event will provide attendees with the opportunity to meet Ladd in person and learn more about her inspiration behind the book.  

Dorothy Ladd is a member of the Ojibwe nation and is from Saugeen First Nation, where she currently resides while raising and observing butterflies through their life stages and tagging them for research.
