Classical pianist Daryl Verville of Nelson published Epistles to the Pope (FriesenPress, unpriced), an inter-generational survivor's story that doubles as an indictment of the Roman Catholic Church and its residential school system. Because Daryl's father was a residential school survivor in Alberta, the author believes undiagnosed trauma was spread to everyone in his family. His epistles to the Pope are a plea for the church to take responsibility for the damage done to both residential school survivors and their children. 9781525554292
