  • This discussion will focus on two books released in October about Wenjack. Wenjack by Joseph Boyden is a short tale about an Ojibwe boy who runs away from a North Ontario residential school and tries to find his way home. He died on his journey in October 1966. His story is Canada's story. The second book is Secret Path, a graphic novel by Gord Downie and Jeff Lemire. Read both or either of these books. We will compare the two styles of story telling as well as the impact of the story. Take a look at them in any bookstore These are both quick reads.
