Description:

7 pm – 8:30 pm Join us for a special author event with Beatrice Elaine Silver. Beatrice is a local Sumas author and advocate. Beatrice built her career in education and First Nations leadership. She was a primary school teacher, and then a school principal. Eventually she held the position of Coordinator Of Indigenous Education For The Ministry Of Education, overseeing Indigenous Education in the Fraser Valley School Districts. In addition, she has served as the Chief of Sumas First Nation. Lex̲èywa - I Pass the Torch to You is her first published book. Her memoir begins before school: a childhood in a small Indian Reserve, first surrounding the reader with her loving family. Many children in Beatrice's generation were taken from home by Indian Affairs agents when they were too young to be able to later recall that safety and certainty. This story allows the reader to walk in the little shoes of a girl who survived the infamous school. She did so by sheer force of will, generated by confidence in the love of her family and the strength of her seven-year-old identity.
