McLeod to the Twin Cities as we celebrate the launch of his debut memoir, Mamaskatch: A Cree Coming of Age, the on the last day of American Indian Month. This event also kicks off his Sharing Stories tour across the United States. Called “powerful and overdue” by Heart Berries author Terese Marie Mailhot, Darrel J. McLeod’s memoir Mamaskatch: A Cree Coming of Age is a lyrical and intimate story about the impact of colonization on McLeod and his family. McLeod writes about abuse, gender fluidity, queerness, and grief with candor, grace, and strength. This event is free and all are welcome. Food and refreshments will be served; for that reason, please RSVP via Eventbrite so the organizers can plan accordingly.
