Budding authors in Manitoba’s growing newcomer community have found their voices and shared their stories once again.
On Thursday, participants of the Finding Your Voice writing program will launch The Past is Another Country: Volume 2 at the Millennium Library.
The authors are from all parts of the globe and share the experience of being a newcomer in a new home country with a new language.
The book also features a section of English-as-an-additional-language activities that can serve as a learning resource. A news release issued by the Finding Your Voice program said teachers may have up to 20 copies of the book for use in the classroom for free. A free eBook version of both Volume 1 and Volume 2 of The Past is Another Country is available at Winnipeg.ca/library.
The book project was funded by Friends of the Winnipeg Public Library, Citizenship and Immigration Canada and Manitoba Immigration and Multiculturalism.
The book launch is 7 p.m. Thursday in the downtown library’s Carol Shields Auditorium.
