History and the Need to Heal - Stratford Writers Festival

Drew Hayden Taylor, Eden Robinson, Lee Maracle, Candy Palmater​
Drew Hayden Taylor introduces readers to a robot that feels grief for brutality against First Nations peoples. Lee Maracle brings us into the lives of a family whose interaction with non-native speakers has caused deadly trauma, and a story by Eden Robinson about a young man’s relationship with his dysfunctional family shows that mistreatment can last through generations. Through three authors’ explorations of trauma placed on the Indigenous people, broadcaster and award-winning TV host Candy Palmater leads a discussion on how the road to recovery has only just begun.

“Stratford itself is the type of walkable wholesome town Rodgers and Hammerstein might write a musical about.”
