Roxane Anderson

Roxane Anderson, an emerging writer, has always been interested in social justice. When she was a 17-year-old high school student, she wrote an article for the Winnipeg Tribune on school bus safety. Now in her sixties, she wrote a piece for CBC First Person, “I should be looking forward to early retirement, but I think I’m dreading it” (published Oct 2022). She co-authored a fictionized memoir, Broken Harnesses, with her late father (BK Publishing 2013). The story is told through the voice of Ross Reid, a young boy growing up during the Great Depression in the Canadian Prairies. When Ross runs away from home to escape the horror there, he dreams of owning a farm one day but instead finds himself a soldier of war. Moving the Flood (self-published 2022) is Roxane’s memoir of her experiences with localized artificial flooding. Roxane Anderson resides on an acreage, along the Red River, north of Selkirk, Manitoba.
