Fiction Book of the Month at Metrotown
"The story of Canada is the story of her relationship with native people. If we lean over the back fence and share part of that story with the person on the other side of the fence, we bring each other closer." -- Richard Wagamese
Join us to discuss our latest fiction pick in an informal, librarian-led book club setting. Everyone welcome.
Medicine Walk is the story of Franklin Starlight, summoned by his dying father, Eldon and tasked with the job of taking him into the mountains so that he may be buried in the traditional Ojibway manner. It is a universal story of tension between a father and son, told in a fresh, utterly memorable way, set in the dramatic landscape of the BC Interior.
