One thought

  1. The Settler’s Cookbook is a fascinating, highly evocative and ultimately a joyously brave book that presents a tight-gripping compelling narrative on shifting identities, being and belonging. I hear she will also be speaking in Vancouver. Does anyone have more information on the Vancouver event?
