#HCCReads: Let's Read and Talk: Virtual Discussion with Sheila Watt-Cloutier's "Right to be Cold"

On Thursday, November 19th at 8 pm Ms. Watt-Cloutier shared her stories from her novel “The Right to Be Cold” with our community of Halton.

Thanks to our incredible partners and sponsors, we had over 850 Zoom participants in our virtual discussion with Sheila Watt-Cloutier.

Thanks to Cogeco Cable’s YourTV, many more viewers also joined us via Channel 700! We have received over 2,800 community questions and over 480 students are reading and being inspired to act after participating in Ms. Watt-Cloutier’s inspirational story and talk!

In the coming weeks, our partners Milton Public Library, Halton Hills Public Library, Oakville Public Library, Halton District School Board Library, and Burlington Public Library will be sharing the top 10 community questions, adjudicated by this team. We will be sending these questions back to Ms. Watt-Cloutier for her answers and we will share Sheila’s answer with you. Stay tuned!
