Current Writer-in-Residence

Janet Rogers reads from E. Pauline Johnson’s Flint and Feather (1912)

Mohawk/Tuscarora poet Janet Rogers is dedicating her time as the Historic Joy Kogawa House writer-in-residence (April 1 to June 30, 2018) to publishing a new collection of legends inspired by the original Legends of Vancouver penned by Mohawk poet E. Pauline Johnson, Tekahionwake, in 1911 as told to her by Chief Joe Capilano, Sa7plek. The original book was a publishing project by the Vancouver Women’s Press Club and the Women’s Canadian Club meant to supply Johnson with funds to pay her medical bills after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Pauline died two years later, on March 7, 1913, three days before her fifty-second birthday.
