Our Last Day
Posted by Yasuko Thanh

Yasuko Thanh

Our last day on tour was amazing.  I visited about eighty students at North Peace Secondary.  I spoke in the library, where I had a chance to wander the stacks before beginning my presentation.  I saw A Passion for Narrative by Jack Hodgins, 13 Ways of Looking at a Novel by Jane Smiley, a picture book on poetics with verse by e.e. cummings.  If the selection of reading material and the Grade Twelve art I saw on the walls are any indication, I’d say Fort St. John is a pretty cool place.  (Not to mention The Lido Theatre.)

To the owner of The Lido who took us on a tour, the kids at Chetwynd who told me what you do around here, the quiet kids and the girl at the front, the rowdy kids, the student from San Antonio, Texas, the teacher who spoke to me about Dressing Up for the Carnival, the boy with the bag of food who broke off pieces of mint Aero to share with his friends, the teacher who cried, the teacher who chose The Road for his class, the teacher who gave me the lanyard and the note, thank you all so much for inviting me into your communities.  A big thank you to Bryan Pike for being awesome and Caroline Adderson for being awesome, too. I’ll never forget you.

Enjoy some pictures below, taken over the last few days:

Waiting for our plane to Fort Nelson.  It’s early in the a.m. and Bryan and Caroline aren’t actually hungover—they just look that way.
