Support Fort St John News

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Helen Knott, local author, and social worker, among many other things, was a special guest on Tuesday’s episode of ‘TELUS Talks with Tamara Taggart’.

When someone goes on the podcast as a guest, TELUS Talks will make a $500 donation to a charity of the guest’s choice. Knott chose Book Club for Inmates, a Canadian Charity that helps provide books and other reading materials to inmates across the Country.

The charity has a special place in Knott’s heart as her grandpa had spent time in prison and was unable to read.

“Choosing that charity and being able to provide some reading materials for people in prison was a way to kind of pay homage to my grandpa, who I loved very much”.

While on the podcast, Knott discusses her memoir ‘In My Own Moccasins‘.
