Teresa-Lee Cooke -- Book Launch

Sunday Oct 15 2017 2:30 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

Launch of A Union of People and Song: A Tribute to Einar Nordstrom.

This compilation of memories, photographs, and poetry is a tribute to Einar Nordstrom who came to Canada looking for work only to find The Great Depression, poverty, hunger, and injustice towards workers. He became a labour leader devoting his life to defending the values of the working class and to preserving their history. His shop, The Record Centre in Thunder Bay, Ontario, became a safe place for music-loving youth in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Without him, Canada would have been a poorer place for both people and song.

Teresa-Lee Cooke’s poetry has appeared in Voices (The Lake Winnipeg Writers’ Group journal), Verse Afire, (The Ontario Poetry Society), and in The Winnipeg Free Press. She shared her work at FemFest 2013-2016 and with Wine and Words 2013. Teresa-Lee lived in Thunder Bay during her teens but has called Winnipeg home for many years. Einar Nordstrom’s kind influence will never be forgotten.
