Helen Knott
Jennifer Matsunaga, a 2019 CBC Nonfiction Prize nominee, hosts an essential conversation on the impact of colonialism and the road forward with Helen Knott, a 2019 RBC Taylor Prize Emerging Author.
 
In My Own Moccasins by Helen Knott is an unflinching account of addiction, intergenerational trauma, and the wounds brought on by sexual violence. It is also the story of sisterhood, the power of ceremony, the love of family, and the possibility of redemption.
 
With gripping moments of withdrawal, times of spiritual awareness, and historical insights going back to the signing of Treaty 8 by her great-great-grandfather, Chief Bigfoot, her journey exposes the legacy of colonialism, while enabling her to reclaim her spirit.
 
Books available for purchase at every event: Proceeds support our free children’s literacy programs.
