Brennen's October book pick is one that he encountered during the 2018 Summer Literacy Camps.  One of Frontier College's major supporters through book donations is Orca Book Publishing, and through their generosity, Frontier College is able to source a lot of great Indigenous and other Canadian content, including Him Standing by Richard Wagamese.  Check out this blog post to learn more!
