Kingston Writers Fest presents Lee Maracle and Columpa Bobb

September 29, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Kingston Writers Fest presents Hope Matters with Lee Maracle and Columpa Bobb.

The romance of the raven; the headstones in the clearing; the ember of justice; a cry to the bark-stripped moon – these are just a few of the many images in Hope Matters, a collection of poems centred around the journey of indigenous peoples in Canada from colonialism to reconciliation, and from home to the broader world. Lee Maracle and co-writer and daughter Columpa Bobb of the Sto:lo Coastal Salish nation share their insights and wisdom in conversation with Anishnaabekwe writer, Lesley Belleau.

Event sponsor: City of Kingston Cultural Heritage: Your Stories/Our Histories
