Sarah de Leeuw, award-winning researcher and creative writer whose work focuses broadly on marginalized peoples and geographies, will sit down with filmmaker, video artist, writer and cultural worker Ariel Smith to discuss her new book Where It Hurts.
Join Sarah and Ariel for an in-depth conversation about a book that shines a spotlight on lost geographies and lost people. Sheniz Janmohamed will host this event.
Where It Hurts is a highly-charged collection of personal essays, haunted by loss, evoking turbulent physical and emotional Canadian landscapes. Sarah de Leeuw’s creative non-fiction captures strange inconsistencies and aberrations of human behaviour, urging us to be observant and aware. The essays are wide in scope and expose what—and who—goes missing.
