Event Details

Building research, connecting with the material, editing, finding the right voice…writing is an interactive process. Reclaiming Hidden Histories: Researching, Writing, and Re-Imagining Community Narratives presents Irene Moore Davis in discussion of her current work Our Own Two Hands: Black Lives in Windsor from the 1700s Forward, a response to Charlotte Perry’s seminal work The Long Road, and the process of conceptualizing and interacting with Windsor Essex’s African Canadian history. Multidisciplinary artists Teajai Travis and Talysha Bujold-Abu will offer a follow-up discussion to writing and responding to this history, how the interaction of writing and research develops in many forms, including poetry, music, fiction, artistic response, walking tours, and more. Methods of archival research, modes of storytelling, and developing characters will be discussed. By Donation.

Presented in partnership with BookFest/Festival du Livre Windsor.
