The Healing Art of Memoir

Venue Details


When our personal stories are deeply rooted in tragedy, how do we begin to tell them? Crafting a memoir that entangles the complex intimacies of loss in a way that inspires and consoles readers takes a master storyteller.

In an evocative evening discussing craft and their stunning memoirs, award-winning Cree authors Christa Couture and Darrel McLeod join Festival moderator Bill Richardson to speak on themes of loss in all its forms, and the artistry of transforming pain into art that heals.
