Book Launch! Beauty of a New Land: The Lives and Legacies of Five Immigrant Women in Canada.

Hello,

Please join me to celebrate the publication of my new book, Beauty of a New Land: The Lives and Legacies of Five Immigrant Women in Canada. 

Beauty of a New Land tells the stories of five elder women, including me, who immigrated to Canada, decades ago, from different parts of the world. The book celebrates their contributions to Canadian society and describes how each has managed to bridge the culture of her homeland with that of their adopted nation. It offers a glimpse into each of four women’s relationships with a daughter and a granddaughter and explores the cultural dynamics that tend to exist within immigrant families who become Canadians.  It bears witness to the vital self-confidence and the sensitive awareness of five women who have made meaningful and happy lives for themselves in Canada while working to forge a just society for others.

I will be reading from and signing the book as well as introducing these amazing women.

We hope you can join us. Please RSVP to michikoss@shaw.ca.
