Join us for a conversation with Margaret Macpherson, author, teacher of writing, and community facilitator. Margaret’s most recent publication, Tracking the Caribou Queen: Memoir of a Settler Girlhood (2022, NeWest Press), is an honest and challenging account about her formative years in Yellowknife in the ’60s and ’70s. In her book, Margaret takes a sustained look at her own white privilege, and how her childhood was shaped by the colonialism and systemic racism that continues today.


With opportunity for audience participation, Margaret will engage in moderated conversation with Sarah Kerr, local Community Organizer and writer, about her work, her inspiration, and will take questions from those attending. We look forward to welcoming you to this event.
