Author Reading with Annahid Dashtgard
Bones of Belonging

Sunday, June 9, 2024
12 Noon at the Bayfield Community Centre, 4 Jane Street, Bayfield

In a series of deft interlocking stories, this national bestseller shares experiences of searching for, and teaching about, belonging in our deeply divided world. A critically acclaimed racialized immigrant writer and recognized diversity and inclusion leader, Annahid writes with wisdom, honesty and a wry humour as she considers what it means to belong—to a country, in a marriage, in our own skin—and what the impact is when belonging is absent. Like the bones of the human body, these stories and vignettes knit together a remarkable vision of what wholeness looks like as a racial outsider in a culture still dominated by whiteness.
