In this unique collection of creative nonfiction, 19 Canadian
women of various cultural, ethnic, and economic backgrounds celebrate the memories of their grandmothers and pay tribute
to the significant role they have played in forming their
identities. Through short stories, poems, journal entries,
letters, and more, grandmother - baba, nonna, yiayia,
babcia - emerges as a symbol of strength, a "stitcher of life".
A compelling anthology that evokes in passionate and
moving writing the matriarch central to all of our lives,
Our Grandmothers, Ourselves is a book to be read
again and again.
