Children of Air India: Un/authorized Exhibits and Interjections

children_of_air_india_imageRenee Sarojini Saklikar has created a moving and well-researched tribute to the 329 people (82 of those, children) who lost their lives on Air India Flight 182 on June 23, 1985 when a terrorist bomb exploded and led to the death of all onboard. Through a series of poems and collages, Saklikar pulls together the many stories of loss while trying to make sense of the actions surrounding this act of terror and the resulting trauma that tore Canadian families apart. Meet Renee at Authors Among Us—“Love and Loss: How Great Emotions Fuel Creativity” on Wed, March 5 at 7pm at the Guildford Library. Call 604-598-7366 to save your spot and visit http://www.surreylibraries.ca/programs-services/5690.aspx for more information. (submitted by MS)
