In Our Own Words: Our Learners' Stories (2012)

This is the seventh collection of writings by learners enrolled in the Volunteer Literacy Tutor Program, a joint project of Literacy Central Vancouver Island and the Nanaimo campus of Vancouver Island University. It was launched in September 2012 to mark International Literacy Day.

Several of the learners are immigrants who write about both the country where they were born and their new home in Canada. A number of works focus on the Aboriginal culture of British Columbia.

Other learners write about sports, music, and people who are important to them.

The cover of the book features artwork by a former learner in the program.
