Friday, February 19, 7 pm: The Reason You Walk – Readings & Discussion

How can we make amends, heal our past with Canada’s Aboriginal peoples and see a path forward that is hopeful?  One way is by continuing to listen to some of the thoughtful, eloquent voices who can articulate the experiences of Aboriginal generations past and present.  Wab will read passages from his memoir The Reason You Walk which tells the story of reconciliation with his father.  There will also be opportunities for discussion, questions as well as having your book personally signed by Wab.  wabkinew.ca@WabKinew
