Kenojuak Ashevak: Life and Legacy Edited by Leslie Boyd Pomegranate January 2020

Kenojuak Ashevak’s ground‐breaking art speaks to her interconnecting roles as an artist, mother and member of the Cape Dorset Inuit community in Nunavut. This book fosters those connections by putting her prints next to their original drawings. It includes a foreword written by Silaqi Ashevak, Kenojuak’s daughter, and an essay about the author’s life by Leslie Boyd, both in English, French and Inuktitut. There is also a travelling art exhibition throughout Canada for the next two years featuring the artwork in the book.
