The Winnipeg International Writers Festival has teamed up with co-presenters McNally Robinson Booksellers to celebrate Indigenous writing in Canada as part of our Voices in the Circle initiative.
Throughout their youth, Columpa Bobb and Tania Carter wrote poetry with their mother, award-winning author Lee Maracle. The three always dreamed that one day they would write a book together. This book is the result of that dream.
The wide-ranging poems in Hope Matters focus on the journey of Indigenous peoples from colonial beginnings to reconciliation. But they also document a very personal journey—that of a mother and her two daughters.
Written collaboratively, Hope Matters offers a blend of three distinct and exciting voices that come together in a shared song of hope and reconciliation.
They’ll be joined by guest Senator Murray Sinclair at this event.
