Angie Abdou – Writing Week Facilitator

Canada Reads finalist Angie Abdou has published seven books and co-edited Writing the Body in Motion, a collection of essays on Canadian Sport Literature.  A starred-review in New York’s Booklist  declared her best-selling memoir, Home Ice: Reflections of a Reluctant Hockey Mom, “a first rate memoir and a fine example of narrative nonfiction.”  This One Wild Life: A Mother-Daughter Memoir launched this April 2021.  A review in Elle Magazine says “Anyone who has ever been pushed to do something outdoorsy because it was good for them – or who has been the parent doing the pushing – will find this sweet tale about a growing and changing parent-child relationship all too familiar.”

Angie Abdou is Associate Professor of Creative Writing at Athabasca University.
