A poet, writer, artist, feminist and psychotherapist, Ann Carson was selected as one of Toronto’s Mille Femme at the 2008 Luminato Festival, which paid tribute to women who have made a contribution to the arts. Her latest book, The Risks of Remembrance, (Words Indeed ) distills a life’s experience in poetry and visual images. In this book she asks: What is remembrance and what does it mean? Carson distills a life’s experience in haunting lyric and narrative poetry and visual images as she explores the mysterious power of memory to shape us and to mould how we see and interact with life.
