Event Description

Inspired by the Forest Poet-Tree Walk, this ramble along the trails of Mary Lake Nature Sanctuary will be accompanied by readings from three local memoirists. Carla Funk’s Mennonite Valley Girl is a coming-of-age story, a contemplation on meaning, morality, and destiny, and a hilarious time capsule of 1980s adolescence. M.A.C. Farrant’s One Good Thing is a collision of memoir with the living, exuberant, and vulnerable natural world. It represents a search for hope and appeasement in a rapidly changing and often perplexing society. An inspiring account of triumph against unimaginable odds, Darrel J. McLeod’s Peyakow, the follow-up to his award-winning memoir Mamaskatch, borrows its title from the Cree word for one who walks alone. Walk with Darrel, M.A.C., and Carla and listen to them read from these compelling books. Hosted by Yvonne Blomer. Captioning available for livestreamed event.
