The Vera Bracken Library will be hosting a talk with award-winning author Ashley Little on Friday, Sept. 27 at 2 p.m. Ashley writes for both adults and teen readers, and her visit to MHC will be focused on her newest book, Confessions of a Teenage Leper. This book is a YA novel that delves into themes of health (specifically Hansen’s disease or leprosy), social isolation, bullying, and education. These themes may be of particular interest for students and faculty in the arts and humanities, education, social work, and the health sciences.

Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt Day

Sept. 30

Orange Shirt Day: Every Child Matters is the legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis (Jack) Webstad’s story of the residential school experience and the taking of her new orange shirt on her first day of school at the Mission. This annual event has grown and is now recognized throughout Canada as an opportunity to take steps toward reconciliation and to learn and discuss residential schools and their legacy in Canada. Wear an Orange Shirt on September 30th to symbolize your support of reconciliation in Canada and support for “Every Child Matters.”

For more information please visit and/or connect with a member of Medicine Hat College’s Indigenous Peoples’ Circle about this important day.
