“Award-winning author Renée Sarojini Saklikar hosts an afternoon reading, with conversation and writing prompts to help participants explore personal and cultural trauma. Renée will share her personal journey in writing poetry “children of air india”, un/authorized exhibits and interjections,  particularly her approach to invention strategies for telling difficult and painful personal and historical stories. There will be plenty of time for questions and for writing, with an opportunity for participants to read briefly from their work, should they choose.

Present for the discussion will be artists from Turning Point Ensemble, with whom Renee is collaborating on an adaptation of her book for music and voice. Learn about  how artistic collaborations can forge new ways of approaching events in our lives that can haunt us as we seek to confront, question, and heal. FREE, but reservations are required.”

Date & Time: Sept 12th, 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Location: Studio 411 at the Anvil Centre, 777 Columbia St., New West
Registration: Call 604-515-3837 or email jeremy(at)
