On the Night Table: Nicole Chammartin
Executive director, Canadian Mental Health Association, Winnipeg region
"I have just finished reading an amazing book called What Is the What by Dave Eggers. It is the story of a Sudanese lost boy, and it is heartbreakingly beautiful. I am halfway through You Have to Be Careful in the Land of the Free by James Kelman, who is a great storyteller if you can read Scottish. (Who knew it was an actual language onto itself?). I also have A Year to Live by Stephen Levine, The Zen Heart by Ezra Bayda and Start Where You Are by Pema Chodron in the pile. These are the books I read in between the others to support the development of mindfulness. Most are on a second read, except the Chodron, which I just started and I am finding to be very grounding."
