EMWF Panel Discussion: Our Stories: Strength and Survival The Eden Mills Writers' Festival presents Our Stories: Strength and Survival Thursday May 20, 8:00 - 9:30 p.m. EST (online) Presenters: Antonio Michael Downing (Saga Boy), Harriet Alida Lye (Natural Killer) and Darrel J. McLeod (Peyakow: Reclaiming Cree Dignity). Host: Bee Quammie These three memoirs tell the story of struggle: to rise above family trauma, dislocation and addiction; to survive a life-threatening illness against all odds; and to overcome a traumatic past in pursuit of a happy and meaningful life. But more than struggle, these are compelling stories of resilience, reminding us that the human spirit is not something easily broken. Join us for interviews with each author, followed by a group discussion and Q&A. This event includes closed captioning.
