The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
10. Hope Matters
COLUMPA BOBB, TANIA CARTER, LEE MARACLE
Moderator: Joanne Arnott
Literary legend Lee Maracle is joined by her daughters, speaking to their joint collection of poetry in a heartwarming, family affair.
“Hope frees, hope relieves; hope moves us… In the end, Hope Matters.” So begins a powerful collection of poetry from literary matriarch, Lee Maracle, and her daughters Columpa Bobb and Tania Carter, depicting the journey of Indigenous peoples from colonialism to reconciliation. Hailed by authors, media, politicians and community leaders, and quickly becoming a modern classic, its pages contain a powerful, moving conversation steeped in loss, acceptance and belief. The three family members and cocreators discuss the process of collaborating; the movement of this book from dream to reality; and the timeless role of women in ensuring that hope endures in the face of all.
