Book Talk with Jesse Thistle
Thursday, November 12, 2020
Join AISC and Assistant Professor Desi Rodriguez-Lonebear for an afternoon discussion with Jesse Thistle, a Métis-Cree from Saskatchewan, Canada. Thistle’s debut book From the Ashes is a memoir about hope and resilience. The book explores his path of being abandoned as a child, living in the foster-care system, and homelessness to the redemptive transformation of overcoming addiction, embracing his First Nation roots and becoming a scholar.
