Executive director, Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council
"My daughter suggested I read Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. 'Mama, you'll cry when you read this book,' she said, and, yes, I have. It's exactly what it says on the cover -- a story about an old man, a young man and life's greatest lesson. I'm also reading A Thousand Farewells, the memoir by the former Winnipegger and CBC journalist Nahlah Ayed. I like the way she is able to show how the experience of the Arab people is universal with refugees and displaced citizens all over the world."
