Join Kathleen Venema for the launch of Bird-Bent Grass: A Memoir, in Pieces (Wilfrid Laurier University Press). This event is free and open to the public.

Hosted by Charlene Diehl, Director of the Winnipeg International Writers Festival.

Bird-Bent Grass chronicles an extraordinary mother–daughter relationship that spans distance, time, and, eventually, debilitating illness. Personal, familial, and political narratives unfold through the letters that Geeske Venema-de Jong and her daughter Kathleen exchanged during the late 1980s and through their weekly conversations, which started after Geeske was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease twenty years later.
