Join us for a reading of "The Secret Pocket" by author Peggy Janicki. This book is based on the author’s mother’s experience at residential school. It is a story of survival and resilience in the face of genocide and cruelty. It is a story of quiet resistance to the injustice of residential schools that tells of the sewing skills passed down through generations of Indigenous women that gave these girls a future, stitch by stitch.
