Family Event in Celebration of Indigenous People's Day: Author Reading with Christy Jordan-Fenton
AFABC is so excited to re-start our Family Events! We have missed all of you and your smiling faces.
We are happy to announce our next event featuring Christy Jordan-Fenton, author of "Fatty Legs". Christy will be reading from her book "When I was Eight", a child-friendly story about her mother in law's experiences at residential school.
Christy spent her early years on a farm near Rimbey, Alberta where cattle drives, rodeos and brandings were common place. Her love of the outdoors began almost from birth and has influenced her in many ways. She has been an infantry soldier, a wilderness survival instructor, a bronc rider, a pipeline labourer and has worked with street children. She attended Norwich University in the United States, and has lived in both Australia and South Africa. She now lives on a scenic prairie farm in North-Eastern British Columbia with her husband and their three children, seventeen horses, a handful of chickens, three dogs, a llama and a rabbit. Her first book, FATTY LEGS was written about her Inuit mother-in-law's experience at a residential school in the Arctic and how her spirit could not be broken.
Please just register one family member, and then log in together. We look forward to seeing you all!
