Reading and Book Launch with Lee Maracle

by jeremylukehill

Okay, so we normally confine ourselves to promoting events in Wellington County, but this one is being run by Musagetes in Guelph and (the real reason, to be honest) I’m a big fan of what rare does. So I’m making an exception.

Lee Maracle will be launching two books at an event in support of rare Charitable Research Reserve on Tuesday, October 27, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM at North House (681 Blair Road, Cambridge).

Lee has been serving as the Eastern Comma Writer in Residence, a joint initiative of Musagetes and rare. She is a prolific writer, poet, an instructor at the University of Toronto and Traditional Teacher for First Nation’s House. Living in our solar powered living lab, North House, Maracle explores the relationship between science and art, and the common inspiration they share: nature.

Lee invites you to celebrate the launch of her two new books: Talking to the Diaspora, her second book of poetry, and Memory Serves, a collection of lectures and oratories from her twenty year career. She will also read from the short story she has been writing during her time as the Eastern Comma Writer-in-Residence.

Places are limited, so please register.
