How North End Love Songs by Katherena Vermette healed Bif Naked's heart
July 1, 2017 marks 150 years since Confederation in Canada. CBC Books is creating the Great Canadian Reading List — a list of 150 books curated by you.
Bif Naked adds North End Love Songs by Katherena Vermette to the reading list.
"I am very moved by Katherena's poetry, and am entangled in my own, Winnipeg coming-of-age history. I have a romanticized memory of my troubled adolescence, and Katherena's storytelling and lovely words make me feel everything I always felt, just more deeply. Poetry is the most beautiful coping technique we could have, and reading her words heals my own heart."
Bif Naked is a Canadian singer-songwriter and punk musician. Her memoir I, Bificus, was published in 2016.
