Why write: AU professors and authors discuss Angie Abdou’s This One Wild Life
Dr. Reinekke Lengelle and Dr. Angie Abdou are both published authors who teach writing at Athabasca University (AU). In this three-part video series, they talk honestly about their approaches to writing, publishing, teaching, and living.
Episode 2: Exploring Abdou's This One Wild Life
Abdou sets out to bond, share, and grow with her daughter, fully immersed in nature’s glory in This One Wild Life: A Mother-Daughter Wilderness Memoir. In her journey, Abdou gives herself a challenge: hike a peak a week over holidays with her daughter.
In this video, Abdou and Lengelle talk about the concept of braveness in writing and why one of the writer’s jobs is to be honest and put some truth on the page.
