Description

Wenjack by Joseph Boyden

An Ojibwe boy runs away from a North Ontario Indian School. Too late, he realizes just how far away home is. Along the way he's followed by Manitous, spirits of the forest who comment on his plight, cajoling, taunting, and ultimately offering him a type of comfort on his difficult journey back to the place he was so brutally removed from.


Want to read some great books? Why not join the ILO Book Club! (For Confederation College Faculty, Support Staff and Administration)
Join us as we explore contemporary Indigenous issues through six highly-acclaimed books written by Indigenous authors. Discussions will take place in the Paterson Learning Commons and will be hosted by Cathy McRae and Bryanna Scott. Please sign up for each session individually. Copies of the books will be available on a first come, first serve basis for those who register. Refreshments will be provided. Sessions count towards electives in the Instructional Skills Workshop Certificate offered by the TLC. All staff welcome!
