Memoir writing

April 21, 2011 at 1:41 am 2 comments

I’ve been reading Country Roads: Memoirs from Rural Canada by such writers as Luanne Armstrong. Laura Best, Pamela Wallin, Ruth Latta, Gordon Tootootsis, Kay Parley, Wayne Johnston, Pamela Banting,  Keith Collier, Rudy Wiebe and many others. Accomplished writers all, with a gift of words that can take you to a place and show you around.

They write from across Canada, stories of longing for the country, stories of challenge and returning to the place of birth, if only for a visit. The authors reflect on the lens one develops from having lived in a place, whether of freedom, poverty or satisfaction.

Read it, whether you’ve come from rural Canada or always lived in a city. Read it, and discover the stories within.
