LitFest Presents Canadian Literature Centre's Brown Bag Lunch: Jael Richard...
Wed, October 19, 2016, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM MDT
Author and advocate for literary diversity Jael Richardson discusses her father-daughter memoir, The Stone Thrower, which has been newly released as a children's book in 2016. As Richardson unravels the story of her father’s life, she begins to compare her own childhood growing up in Canada with her father’s US civil rights era upbringing. Along the way, she also discovers the real reason – despite his athletic accomplishments – her father was never drafted into the National Football League.
