‘Zhindagee’ Book Reading at UFV

IMG_0739On March 9th, author Mahinder Kaur Doman presented the poetry and writings from her book Zhindagee: Selected stories from our first daughter, which looks at the stories and narratives of female South Asian pioneers. The book recounts stories of the first Indian daughters born in Canada, including the Fraser Valley, Paldi and Lake Cowichan. The stories of these women are so rarely heard that it was certainly a treat for those attendees who listened. UFV President and Vice-Chancellor Mark Evered also attended the event and was presented with a copy of the book by Mahinder.
