The Sasquatch at Home

Traditional Protocols & Modern Storytelling

By Eden Robinson
Introduction by Paula Simons
In March 2010 the Canadian Literature Centre hosted award-winning novelist and storyteller Eden Robinson at the 4th annual Henry Kreisel Lecture. Robinson shared an intimate look into the intricacies of family, culture, and place through her talk, "The Sasquatch at Home." Robinson's disarming honesty and wry irony shine through her depictions of her and her mother's trip to Graceland, the Potlatch where she and her sister received their Indian names, how her parents first met in Bella Bella (Waglisla, British Columbia) and a wilderness outing where she and her father try to get a look at b'gwus, the Sasquatch. Readers of memoir; Indigenous literatures, histories and cultures; and fans of Robinson's delightful, poignant, sometimes quirky tales will love The Sasquatch at Home.
