Burning in this Midnight Dream

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Louise Bernice Halfe

The latest collection of poems by Louise Bernice Halfe, written in response to the grim tide of emotions, memories, dreams, and nightmares that arose in her as the Truth and Reconciliation process unfolded. With fearlessly wrought verse, Halfe describes how the experience of residential school continues to haunt those who survive, and how the effects pass like a virus from one generation to the next. She asks us to consider the damage done to children taken from their families, to families mourning their children—damage done to entire communities and to ancient cultures.
