Our third set of “The Things We Carry’’ storytelling circles will feature three published authors: Joy Kogawa (from Ontario), Victoria Kuttainen (from Australia) and May Q. Wong (from Victoria).
Each author will share her family migration story and reflections on migration. The size of the circles is designed to enable participants to interact with the featured storytellers in an intimate environment in the historic Joy Kogawa House, where acclaimed writer Joy Kogawa grew up. After the presentation by each author/storyteller, there will be time for questions and sharing among members of the circle.
