In Conversation with Sarah de Leeuw

Sarah de Leeuw, award-winning researcher and creative writer, and Ariel Smith, Executive Director of the world’s largest Indigenous media arts festival, imagineNATIVE, held an in-depth conversation about Where It Hurts, a book that shines the spotlight on lost geographies and lost people.

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.
