Let Me Tell You My Story

Exploring his family’s Indigenous roots, David A. Robertson pieces together his own blood memory through prose memoir. Poets Sachiko Murakami and Bardia Sinaee take a different approach, sharing their own experiences through verse. Each deeply affecting work is a reminder that there isn’t only one way to tell a personal story. Hosted by gritLIT Program Advisor Shazia Hafiz Ramji.
