I am hosting two wonderful women writers over the next two Sundays and hope you can join us. Betsy Warland this week, and Fauzia Rafique next.
Betsy Warland: Poet, author and editor, Betsy Warland has been writing on the cutting edge of feminist literature and active in the feminist writing community for thirty years. Her poetry, and latterly her non-fiction, push the boundaries of genre while challenging the assumptions of culture. A mentor to many, she is currently director of The Writer’s Studio at SFU.
Fauzia Rafique: Fauzia Rafique’s long-awaited novel, Skeena, was published in Punjabi in Pakistan in 2007, and in Canada last Spring. It is the story of a Muslim Canadian woman, written in Skeena’s own voice, which follows her journey from village to Lahore, to Toronto and finally Surrey. Author Tariq Malik, a member of Kogawa House Board, will host the event with me.
