Duncan Mercredi (Braeden Mercredi)
Catcher in the Rye was a high school assignment that I hated at first but then I grew to identify with the main character. It's a story of a teenager in a changing world, dealing with depression and a feeling of isolation.
—Duncan Mercredi, poet and storyteller
Duncan Mercredi is a Metis poet, writer and storyteller who will be featured as part of the Human Library at the Millennium Library from January 24 - 26.
Since he's about to become a human book, SCENE wanted to know what Mercredi likes to read. He told us it was hard to choose:
Although I have, in the last few years scaled back considerably on picking up new books to read, I do occasionally scan books that have been recommended by friends. If they do not capture my attention after a quick read, I set them aside and forego a second read through.
I suppose the last two books that I really got into were Kiss of the Fur Queen by Tomson Highway and Three Day Road by Joseph Boyden.
