Honouring Reconciliation Reading Circle: Bev Sellars' They Called Me Number One

In these Reading Circles, we will explore Bev Sellars’ frank and poignant memoir, They Called Me Number One, in which she shares her personal account of her residential school experience and eloquently articulates her own path to healing. Library staff will facilitate each Reading Circle discussion to expand our understanding of local Indigenous history, impacts of colonialism and its ongoing effects on Indigenous peoples.

In order to participate in a Reading Circle, please choose only one of the available sessions.  

Seats are limited. Online registration opens Tuesday, August 22 at 10 a.m.   

This Reading Circle opportunity is part of a series of programs and activities that the WVML is offering this fall to honour the experiences of Indigenous Peoples in Canada, facilitate shared learning and promote understanding of our shared history.
