Sylvia Nickerson on tour with Creation

This fall, Sylvia Nickerson will be on tour with her debut, fictionalized memoir Creation. In Creation, a new mother takes us on a tour of Hamilton, a Rust Belt city born of the Industrial Revolution and dying a slow death due to globalization. This mother represents the city’s next wave of inhabitants—the artists and young parents who swarm a run-down area for its affordability, inevitably reshaping the neighborhoods they take over. Creation looks at gentrification from the inside out—an artist mother making a home and neighborhood for her family, struggling to find her place amid the existing and emerging communities.

Sylvia will be making stops in Toronto, Montreal, Hamilton, Bethesda, and Eden Mills.
