Shannon Webb-Campbell recommends Memory Serves by Lee Maracle
June was Indigenous Book Club Month. Every day in June, CBC Books published a recommendation from an Indigenous writer for a book by another Indigenous author.
Shannon Webb-Campbell recommends Memory Serves by Lee Maracle.
"Coast Salish award-winning author Lee Maracle's Memory Serves gives voice to the living breathing land. As an edited collection of oratories that span two decades of lectures, Memory Serves, edited by Smaro Kamboureli, embodies ancestral wisdom, Indigenous feminism, philosophy, law and spirituality. As one of the most resilient and powerful voices on Turtle Island, Maracle's Memory Serves is equal parts criticism and poetics. This is an offering of consciousness, a journey of awakening."
Shannon Webb-Campbell is a Mi'kmaq poet, writer and journalist who has written for The Walrus and Quill & Quire. Her collection Still No Word won the EGALE Out in Print Literary Award.
