Harold R. Johnson a recent resident to our island will be giving a short talk on “changing the story we tell ourselves” on Wednesday October 27at the Gabriola Community Hall.
Johnson is the author of six works of fiction and two works of nonfiction. His nonfiction work Firewater: How Alcohol Is Killing My People (and Yours) was a finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award for nonfiction.
Born and raised in northern Saskatchewan to a Swedish father and a Cree mother, he is a graduate of Harvard Law School and managed a private practice for several years before becoming a Crown prosecutor.
Johnson is a member of the Montreal Lake Cree Nation where he learned to live off the land which in turn has allowed him to fearlessly venture down many new paths.
The Ecumenical Society invites you to come listen to Harold, an amazing storyteller, and to be part of a discussion afterwards.
