Indigenous Author Books Reading for Truth and Reconciliation
The Further Education Society of Alberta's Board Member, Judy Everson, of Everson Publishing, is attending the Reconnection, Reconciliation and Resilience event on September 30th. She will be reading her book Little One Discovers His Calling One Feather at a Time.
Judy is a long time FESA member, first joining us as a program participant who moved on to become a facilitator, and last year she became a FESA Board Member! Judy is an author who has written numerous books, and her most recent is the book she will be reading at the Reconnection, Reconciliation and Resilience event on Saturday.
Little One Discovers His Calling One Feather at a Time is about Little One, his two sisters, and their parents, who are about to face many new challenges as they move from their reserve into a crowed city, with its noise, traffic, and fast-paced lifestyle.
This event is being held on National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day that honours the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.
You can go meet Judy, and other Indigenous vendors and speakers at Grace Presbyterian Church Park Lot at 1009 15 Ave SW, Calgary AB T2R 0S5.
