    Meet the Author, Sonja Larsen,Winner of the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction

    Author of Red Star Tattoo: My Life as a Girl Revolutionary 

    “As is the case with lives themselves, all memoirs are unique, but this seems especially true of Sonja Larsen’s Red Star Tattoo: My Life as a Girl Revolutionary,” said Bruce Gillespie, an award juror and professor in Wilfrid Laurier University’s Digital Media and Journalism program. “In this coming-of-age story, she looks back at a childhood and adolescence spent searching for a sense of connection and purpose beyond her family, first in a commune and later as part of what she eventually recognized as a cult whose purported goal was to incite an American communist revolution. She captures the environment of paranoia, violence, and futility in which she grew up in a stark, frank style that never tugs on readers’ heartstrings or asks for their pity. Instead, Larsen presents a clear-eyed look at her almost unbelievable past and crafts a character study in resilience that is eminently engaging.”

    Copies of “Red Star Tattoo: My Life as a Girl Revolutionary” will be available for purchase.

    Complimentary light lunch will be served.    

    This event is free, but spots are limited. Registration is required rsvp@wlu.ca
