Octopus Books Centretown, 251 Bank St. 2nd Floor
BOOK LAUNCH: The Grandmothers' Movement, Solidarity and Survival in the Time of AIDS, with May Chazan. Royalties will be donated to the Hillcrest AIDS Centre Trust. At the height of the African AIDS crisis older women mobilized across two continents and an ocean of difference to change the lives of innumerable African women confronting insecurity, violence, grief, and illness. In 2006 the Stephen Lewis Foundation launched its Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, seeking to organize Canadians in solidarity with "Africa's grandmothers" - older caregivers who had lost their children to AIDS and were left to raise their grandchildren. Four years later, some 10,000 Canadians had joined the campaign. May Chazan's The Grandmothers' Movement explores the encounters, ideas, and circumstances that shaped this remarkable story of solidarity and struggle. Based on interviews, family trees, personal journals, and archival materials, Chazan provides the first analysis of the movement. Through personal reflections and powerful vignettes from nearly a decade of participation in grandmothers' lives in South Africa and Canada, she presents untold narratives and brings new humanity to the AIDS crisis in Africa. This event is co-funded through the Canada Research chairs program, Carleton University's Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, and McGill-Queen's University Press.
