Guest at November’s Write Out Loud

Posted on 14 November 2023 by Ryan Dahlman

Jennifer S. Wallace’s book, “Miss G and Me” (DriverWorks Inc 2021) is a daughter’s memoir. As many of us wish we’d done, but find it’s too late, Jennifer asks probing questions to understand her mother’s choices in life. Ruth Williamson MacLeod, nicknamed Miss G by her family, is different from most prairie moms because she’s from Jamaica. Jennifer uses anecdotes, journals, poetry, and personal essays to weave together the journey of Miss G, a nurse who immigrated to Canada and stayed. Through her questioning and research, Jennifer gains a greater understanding of her own life with roots in two countries.

Jennifer Wallace is a French Immersion teacher in Saskatoon. Her first book was a non-fiction story about her first-born, “When he Opened His Eyes: Gordon’s Story”. She writes articles and poems for online magazines and, in 2020, the yet to be published manuscript of “Miss G and Me” received recognition from the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild’s John V. Hicks Long Manuscript Award for Creative Non-Fiction. 

Ms. Wallace’s reading is sponsored by the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild, and it’s appreciated that Anderson & Company Swift Current and Stark & Marsh also provide major sponsorships for Write Out Loud programming.

Write Out Loud commences at 7:00, November 15 at the Swift Current Museum. Local entertainer, Bob Jamieson, will open for our featured author, Jennifer Wallace.  Admission is $8. Doors open at 6:30.
