Pre-Order Now – Available April 15, 2019

Hope Matters, written by multiple award-winning author Lee Maracle and her daughters Columpa Bobb and Tania Carter, focuses on the journey of Indigenous people from colonial beginnings to reconciliation. Maracle states that the book “is also about the journey of myself and my two daughters.” During their youth, Bobb and Carter wrote poetry with their mother, and they all decided that one day they would write a book together. This book is the result of that dream.

Written collaboratively by all three women, the poems in Hope Matters blend their voices together into a shared song of hope and reconciliation.

Praise for Hope Matters:

“You need to read this book. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll swear out loud, but mostly you’ll be proud of these ladies.” Senator Murray Sinclair

“Daughters and mother poetry dances around each other, weaves rhythm and breathes love. The ancestors sing, babies laugh and hope always wins.” Katherena Vermette, author of The Break and River Woman

“I was captivated by each and every one of these extraordinary poems. Each of the poets is utterly unique and yet there is a striking commonality: commonality of blood, of perspective, and most of all, how the immense power of female desire is expressed through the power and dynamism of the natural world.” Judith Thompson, award-winning author of White Biting Dog and The Other Side of Dark
