Klee Wyck: Emily Carr and Indigenous People

KleeWyckCover 1941Good thing the Merrickville and District Historical Society does such a great job of getting the word out. I’m so busy working on the third volume of Emily Carr’s BC that I haven’t posted a word about this presentation. As requested by the organizers, I’ll be focusing on Emily’s relationship with Indigenous people as illustrated in her first book, Klee Wyck, and I’ll also be talking a bit about the settler experience she recorded in her second book, The Book of Small. Part of the Merrickville 225 celebrations. June 17, Merrickville Legion, 2 pm.
