The grandmother-granddaughter relationship is a powerful and enduring bond that is instrumental in shaping the lives of women everywhere.

In this unique collection of creative non-fiction, nineteen Canadian women of various cultural, ethnic and economic backgrounds celebrate the memories of their grandmothers and pay tribute to the enormous role they have played in shaping their identities.

Through short stories, poems, journal entries, letters and more, grandmother - baba, nonna, yiayia, babcia - emerges as a symbol of strength, a stitcher of life.

A compelling and moving anthology, Our Grandmothers, Ourselves evokes with great passion the matriarch central to all of our lives. It is a book to be read again and again.
