Lawrence Hill visits Frontier College

On June 16, we received a wonderful donation as a result of CBC's Canada Reads. Author Lawrence Hill presented a cheque on behalf of publisher HarperCollins Canada. The donation will support our Aboriginal Summer Literacy Camps serving 120 communities in 9 provinces and territories.

He also met with our bookroom volunteers, staff, board members and donors. He graciously signed donated copies of his winning book from CBC Canada Reads - The Illegal.

Thank you Lawrence!
