Beyond the Orange Shirt Story is a unique collection of truths that articulate the lives and experiences of some Residential School Survivors and their families. Compiled by Phyllis Webstad, Residential School Survivor and Founder of the Orange Shirt Day movement, this book will give readers an up-close look at what life was like for many Survivors — before, during, and after their Residential School experiences. These personal Survivor accounts, relayed in a number of one-on-one interviews, are authentically shared in their own voices. Come meet author local Phyllis Webstad, talk to her about her experiences and purchase the Orange Shirt Day and/or Beyond the Orange Shirt Day Story.
