Lindsay Nixon at Naked Heart Festival
November 10, 2018 @ 2:15 pm - 3:30 pmFree
nîtisânak by Lindsay Nixon
with special guests
ASL will be provided at this event
How do you honour blood and chosen kin with equal care? A groundbreaking memoir spanning nations, prairie punk scenes, and queer love stories, Lindsay Nixon’s nîtisânak is woven around grief over the loss of their mother. It also explores despair and healing through community and family, and being torn apart by the same. Using cyclical narrative techniques and drawing on Nixon’s Cree, Saulteaux, and Métis ancestral teachings, this work offers a compelling perspective on the connections that must be broken and the ones that heal.
Join Lindsay and special guests for an afternoon of readings in honour of the book’s much-anticipated release by Metonymy Press.
