On June 15, 2012 in Chatham-Kent, Ontario, as part of the fifth annual Promised Land Symposium “Claiming the Promise: A Retrospective on African Canadian History”, the symposium is offering an evening with award winning and international best-selling Canadian author Lawrence Hill.
Lawrence Hill’s talk this evening will touch on various topics from his personal experiences growing up in suburban Toronto and the effect of that experience on his creative work; his experiences writing about and researching “Black History” in this country and; the themes of this year’s Promised Land Symposium.
Poet Cecily Nicholson, who hails from St. Thomas and lives in Vancouver, will also join the symposium and will read from her new book, Triage.
