Difficult knowledge poses challenges for writers and readers chronicling hard truths including trauma, loss, injustice, mental illness, and the complex problems of care. This three-person panel includes brief presentations and a dialogue about confronting hard truths and distilling them on the page. How does one accurately chronicle struggles such as family trauma and still honour the multiple points of view and perspectives? What change can result from writing hard truths? The discussion concludes with 5-minute readings from authors Kim Pittaway, Lorri Neilsen Glenn, and Clem Martini.
