Red Files, The, paper ed 2017 FNCR

$18.95

The Red Files is inspired by family and archival sources, Lisa Bird-Wilson assembles scraps of a history torn apart by colonial violence.  The poetry collection takes its name from the federal government's complex organizational structure of residential schools archives, which are divided into black files and red files.  In vignettes clear as glass beads, her poems offer affection to generations of children whose presence within the historic record is ghostlike, anonymous and ephemeral.
