Coming Soon: 'These Tales Are True' by Mariam Zohra D.

'These Tales are True' is a narrative of a refugee interfaced with opposing philosophies of life in a new place and an ever-changing time; a narrative that comes full circle. The process of coming to that place of reaffirmation - remembering what tales you believed in as a child; putting to account those stories, myths, legends, intuitions so to return to that place again, anew again.

Expressed using poetry, lyrics, drawings and the arrangement of these elements into a composition, this little chapbook creates a powerful reading experience.

Mariam is a Vancouver artist. She arrived as a refugee from Lahore, Pakistan in 1986. She has lived in Montreal and Toronto. Through a life-long relationship to poetry/prose, audio/visual arts, herbalism, philosophy, song and dance she finds her voice, passion and inspiration. Her earlier poetry collection is titled 'Not to Understand' (Diva Publications, Toronto 1990).
