PORT HOPE — Join scholar Jesse Thistle for a reading and discussion of his new book.

Taking place at the Cameco Capitol Arts Theatre on Sept. 12, Thistle’s memoir From the Ashes, My Story of Being Metis, Homeless and Finding My Way, will give people insight into his life and a deeper understanding into indigenous people.
