Darrel McLeod to Speak at Mitchell Museum

 Milkweed Editions publishing house and the Canadian Consulates General will bring Darrel McLeod, winner of the Governor General’s Literary Award for Nonfiction, to Chicago to speak about his memoir “Mamaskatch: A Cree Coming of Age.”

Mr. McLeod will welcome readers at the Mitchell Museum, 3001 Central St., from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 1 for a reception, talk, and book signing. The event is free to all visitors.

“Mamaskatch: A Cree Coming of Age” chronicles Mr. McLeod’s upbringing in the Cree culture and provides a hard look at the impact of Canada’s residential school system and its resulting intergenerational trauma on his mother and family.

Therese Mailhot, who visited the Mitchell Museum last year for the release of her own memoir, described “Mamaskatch” as “powerful and overdue.”

Mr. McLeod will also visit the Women and Children First bookstore, 5233 N. Clark St. in Chicago, in conversation with Ms. Mailhot, at 7 p.m. on July 31.
