The grandmother-granddaughter relationship is a powerful and enduring bond that is instrumental in shaping our lives. As woman, feminist, friend, teacher, healer, and keeper of our first language and culture, our grandmothers are not only a source of inspiration but a connection to our roots.In this unique collection of creative non-fiction, 19 Canadian women of various cultural, ethnic, and economic backgrounds celebrate the memories of their grandmothers and pay tribute to the significant role they have played in forming their identities. Through short stories, poems, journal entries, letters, and more, grandmother - baba, nonna, yiayia, babcia - emerges as a symbol of strength, a "stitcher of life."A compelling anthology that evokes in passionate and moving writing the matriarch central to all of our lives, Our Grandmothers, Ourselves is a book to be read again and again.
