Thursday March 9th, 2017 with Kate Hunt
Voices from the Adoption Files

Kate talks with creator and producer Lesley Parlane, and storytellers Beverly McKiver and Sage Cardinal, about their upcoming Ottawa Storytellers show. Drawn from personal experience, these stories from the 1960s adoption scoop depict the loss and grief of families separated, as well as the joy of re-connecting with siblings, culture, and community in later years. Poignantly told and generously shared, Voices from the Adoption Files weave together tales that highlight the power of ritual in healing, and the deep love that mends the spirit.
