GGBooks Finalists in Conversation: What I Remember, What I Know, with Larry Audlaluk

November 16 at 2:30pm

Sign up/in to register for this event

Governor General’s Literary Award finalist Larry Audlaluk was one of more than 90 Inuit relocated by the federal government to the High Arctic in the 1950s. They were promised a land of plenty, and were given an inhospitable polar desert. Audlaluk’s memoir, What I Remember, What I Know: The Life of a High Arctic Exile, documents his family’s struggle, juxtaposed with excerpts from official reports that conveyed the relocation as a success. Hear from Audlaluk in candid conversation about the experience, the broken promises and the fight to return home.

Interviewer: Kim Wheeler

This event is organized in collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts (CCA) to celebrate the 2021 non-fiction finalists of the Governor General’s Literary Awards, which recognize Canada’s best English-language and French-language books. The winners will be announced by the CCA on November 17.
