Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest
Maia Caron, Ali Cobby Eckermann, Leanne Betasamosake Simpson
Moderator: Nic Low
Leanne Betasamosake Simpson wants “the next generation of Indigenous artists and activists to see their own experiences reflected.” Writing her book was “an act of decolonizing.” Ali Cobby Eckermann describes her writing as an “emotional timeline” of the Stolen Generations—Indigenous children, herself included, taken from their families by the Australian government. When Maia Caron discovered her Métis roots she felt obliged to resurrect the ghosts of her ancestors in her writing. Come hear three writers whose personal identity is inextricably bound up in their work.
Presented with SFU Library.
