“Places do not belong to us. We belong to them.” Join memoir authors Kerri Arsenault and Kazim Ali as they explore questions of land and power, the environmental impact of 20th century industrial practices, and remembering lost connections to the places we belong. Arsenault’s investigative memoir Mill Town is set in the rural town of Mexico, Maine, where for over 100 years the community orbited around a paper mill that provided jobs for nearly everyone in town, including three generations of Arsenault’s family. In Kazim Ali’s Northern Light: Power, Land, and Memory of Water, Ali searches for a small Manitoba town where he spent years as a child, only to find the local Pimicikamak community facing debilitating environmental destruction.
