Naomi K. Lewis. Naomi K. Lewis writes, edits, and teaches creative writing in Calgary. She was an associate editor at Alberta Views magazine and has served as Writer-in-Residence at the Calgary Public Library and the University of New Brunswick.

"Wry, moving and beautifully written—Naomi Lewis is a wonderful writer."

Alison Pick, Booker nominated author of Between Gods and Strangers with the Same Dream


"Early on in Tiny Lights for Travellers, author Naomi Lewis admits she is a poor traveller. She is, however, a master navigator of her own interior geography. In this quiet, humble, and profoundly openhearted memoir, Lewis maps her family’s history, her relationship to faith, and the loves she has both lost and gained. As a reader, I feel thankful to have been invited on the journey."

Marcello Di Cintio, author of Pay No Heed to the Rockets


"An irresistibly wise, poignant, and often funny memoir, a spiral dance through time and space exploring memory, desire, the roots of family, race, and religion; as well as what it means to belong in one’s own skin."

Lauren B. Davis, author of The Grimoire of Kensington Market, The Empty Room, and others


"I was deeply engaged with Naomi’s journey through Europe while also curious about and interested in the memories of her family life, her marriage, her questions of identity, and a burgeoning love story. A hugely intelligent and creative memoir."

Lauren Carter, author of Following Sea
