Stacey Zembrzycki was born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario, and currently resides in Montreal, Quebec, where she teaches in the Department of History and Classics at Dawson College. The granddaughter of two miners who came from Warsaw, Poland, and Mossey River, Manitoba, to work in Sudbury’s nickel mines in the postwar period, she spent the bulk of her childhood in their homes, listening to their stories but mostly those told by her grandmothers.
