Pandemic letter writing project paves roadmap for a more hopeful future
The experience of living through the pandemic has, at times, left many of us feeling disconnected from the world and from each other. And as more challenges, from police brutality to climate change, were layered on top... Canadian writers Robyn Maynard and Leanne Betasamosake Simpson found a way to connect and navigate the chaos around them: They started writing letters to each other. Their exchanges show how they coped during the pandemic and contain insights into the way our country's history of colonization and slavery led us to this moment. Maynard and Betasamosake Simpson join Piya Chattopadhyay to talk about their relationship and how their letters became a new book, called Rehearsals for Living.
