As part of a series of readings and discussions taking place across Canada, Storying Climate Change invites communities to discuss and reflect on what climate change means for them now. Canadian writers Kyo Maclear (Birds Art Life, Orillia’s Big Read 2017 selection), Deborah McGregor (Indigenous Environmental Justice, York University & Whitefish River First Nation), and Hillary McGregor (Sport Ontario) will be joined by local writers and storytellers to read, tell stories, and discuss a new collection of climate change stories, titled Rising Tides: Reflections for Climate Changing Times. Including more than forty works of short fiction, memoir, and poetry, Rising Tides emphasizes the need for intimate stories and thoughtful attention to climate change.
