Long Road Home Tour: Winnipeg Events

The Long Road Home tour, celebrating the launch and life of Crash Landing, Liz Jansen’s widely acclaimed new memoir, moves to Winnipeg at the end of September for three events.

Thursday September 26, 7:30 p.m.

Presentation and Book Signing at McNally Robinson

Join Liz in an evening of stories inspired by Moto-travel on her Ancestor Trail. At age 60, she set out on a year+ long quest to understand how the experiences of her Russian Mennonite Ancestors shaped her. Three weeks later she crashed in rural Alberta, sustaining significant injuries and totalling her motorcycle. But that was only the beginning of a life-changing journey. She completed it two years later with a new motorcycle and a wonderful ending.

Engage in stories of adventure—both on and off the motorcycle. Change the way you look at the stories you carry. Bring your own vehicle, baggage, and beliefs.

Books are now available for purchase in store or online.

The Stories We Carry Workshop, McNally Robinson

Free yourself of who you were told you were so you can be your best at who you are.

The stories you were raised with shaped you and continue to operate in the background without your knowing. You have the power to change those that no longer serve you (note: perhaps these stories did serve you at one time!) and write life according to your own script.

Through storytelling, drumming-facilitated meditation, and journaling, you’ll take a look at the stories that have shaped you. You’ll learn how to choose what to take, what to leave behind, and what else you need to make the most of your life’s journey.

More information and registration.
