March/April 2023: Adult Readers

For March/April 2023 and in honour of International Women's Day (March 8), International Day of Happiness (March 20), International Day of the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (March 21), and World Book Day (April 23), we are extremely humbled to introduce Helen Knott's memoir, In My Own Moccasins: A Memoir of Resilience. Helen offers her truth to readers as she shares accounts of addiction, sexual violence, intergenerational trauma, and the devastating effects these things have on one's life. Through her resilience, the love she holds for her child, and her drive to advocate for other Indigenous women and girls, Helen strives to find her way to happiness through a tough and painful journey.
