Because of a Hat

Mr. Henderson’s Canadian History Class 2012/13: The history of Red River has not been easy, but is a microcosm of Canada’s story - one of mutual dependence, respect, and conflict. We hope our stories can shed light on how we might move forward in the 21st century.

The Ocean: A Novel

The Ocean follows three women through the growing modernization and political turmoil of Chile, to their exile in land-locked Winnipeg. These women each live in different eras, yet are all confronted with changed personal and public histories. The only constant in their lives is the presence of the ocean. 

Cecilia Araneda was born in Chile and came to Canada with her family after they escaped Chile’s bloody coup d’etat. An accomplished filmmaker, The Ocean is her first novel.
