Mending Steel

Fresh out of high school blacksmith and knife maker Kaden Kanakakeesic was well on his way to achieving his dreams of one day turning his hobby into his profession, until one simple mistake almost changed everything. The story of his comeback and the community support that followed.

Writing for Those Who Can't

During World War II, Susan Garfield started writing in a diary. Now, the written words of a teenager are immortalized in a memoir, which she hopes will raise awareness of the atrocities that occurred, and to share the stories of those who didn't live to tell them.

Bringing Dolls to Life

Among the little faces, fingers, and toes of the 'reborn' dolls that Lorna Robert makes is a passion for creating something as life-like as possible - not only for the artistic challenge but also as a form of therapy, bringing comfort to seniors or those healing from a personal loss. It's a perfect match for her background, but a new world she only discovered after a difficult experience of her own.
