Don't Stand Too Close!: You Might Get Some On You, More Lessons From My Life is a collection of 27 essays, short stories, and reminisces from Ojibwe storyteller and librarian Sherry Lawson from Mnjikaning First Nation. Part memoir and part oral tradition, the collection is her second volume of stories that explore her life, her family and friends and community members' interactions and local history. The rich collection contains a dose of welcome humour mixed with serious topics such as residential schools, and childhood trauma. She generously shares her poignant recollections of talking with well-known artist Arthur Shilling as he opens up about why he draws and how it related to his residential school experiences. Lawson speaks with pride and celebration as she writes about a reporter's interview with world champion hoop dancer Lisa Odjig. This second book in her series about her life lessons is well worth a read. Recommended.
