In her long life, EVE ZAREMBA has picked tomatoes, driven a Bookmobile, researched Canadians' junk food preferences, and written feminist detective novels. She reflects on those experiences, and the personalities and politics involved, in her memoir, MEMORY'S TRACES. Eve spent her childhood in 1930s Warsaw, the daughter of a Polish army officer. When the Nazis invaded, she and her family took refuge in England, arriving in Canada in 1952. By the 1970s, Eve was an active part of Toronto's lesbian feminist community and a founding collective member of Broadside newspaper. Sharply observant and fearlessly honest, Eve Zaremba's memories and insights will entertain and provoke readers, often at the same time. She provides an inside look at a disappearing but hugely influential time in the Canadian women's movement and the people and ideas that shaped it. Illustrated with photos and ephemera from Eve's personal collection, Memory's Traces makes a sparkling contribution to Canadian feminist history.
