Ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, Win­nipeg Folk Fes­ti­val “I’m cur­rently read­ing Blood: The Stuff of LLife by Lawrence Hill, who’s best-known for hhis novel The Book of Ne­groes. This book wwas cre­ated as a writ­ten record­ing of the 2013 CBC Massey Lec­tures — each chap­ter can also be heard on­line in Hill’s voice. It’s a great read — it’s al­ter­ing and ex­pand­ing mmy un­der­stand­ing of how blood works, what it rep­re­sents and its im­pact on our his­tory and present-day lives. While it’s a part of us all, I’m learn­ing it con­nects us in deeper ways than I ever imag­ined. And there’s a good Win­nipeg con­nec­tion in the book, too.”
