The Globe and Mail

a truly creative and heartfelt work

Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review
"Leanne is a gifted writer who brings passion and commitment to her storytelling and who has demonstrated an uncommon ability to manage an impressive range of genres from traditional storytelling to critical analysis, from poetry to spoken word, from literary and social activism to songwriting. She is, in my opinion, one of the more articulate and engaged voices of her generation." -- Thomas King, author of Green Grass, Running Water and The Inconvenient Indian
