December's meeting has been postponed to the second Thursday of the month. 

In November we are reading "FireKeeper's Daughter" by Angeline Boulley. This book was chosen in honor of Native American Heritage Month. 

 

This is the story of 18 year old Daunis Fontaine. She is the daughter of a french-canadian mother and an Ojibwe father. Her father was known as a Firekeeper, but her maternal grandparents made sure she would not inherit his name or his tribal status. Her life caught between two cultures has always been a challenge for her, but since losing her Uncle David and now about to head off to college, it's become even harder. Daunis is trying to find her place in the world and within her own family. This becomes more complicated when a new guy moves to town and joins her brother's hockey team; Daunis is quickly roped into showing him around town, and much to her dismay, she finds a lot to like in Jamie Johnson. Soon they are spending almost everyday running together, and as they do, Daunis opens up to him, but Jamie does not reciprocate, keeping his own life private. Daunis worries about what he's not telling her, but once she finds out, it's more than she could have ever guessed.
