Hope Matters

A poetry collection by Lee Maracle, Columpa Bobb and Tania Carter.

Lee Maracle, Columpa Bobb and Tania Carter

Hope Matters, written by multiple award-winning author Lee Maracle and her daughters Columpa Bobb and Tania Carter, focuses on the journey of Indigenous people from colonial beginnings to reconciliation. Maracle states that the book "is also about the journey of myself and my two daughters."

During their youth, Bobb and Carter wrote poetry with their mother, and they all decided that one day they would write a book together. This book is the result of that dream. Written collaboratively by all three women, the poems in Hope Matters blend their voices together into a shared song of hope and reconciliation. (From Book*hug Press)
