Whittlenods occur when those who engage in talk and thought about cultural flotsam and jetsam discover the flaws in their habitual thinking.

This Month's Whittle Nod: Mulching Metaphors


Thistledown Press gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, and the Government of Canada through the Canada Book Fund for our publishing activities. 

Congratulations to Joanne Weber on her Saskatchewan Book Award nominations


The Deaf House highlights the work and passions of a woman who grew up deaf and became an advocate for the deaf. It is a story of pain, loss and defeat balanced with joy, gain, and victory. It is the true story of a deaf woman as much as it is the fable of a heroic quest where a woman overcomes the most profound obstacles to find herself.


Joanne Weber obtained degrees in English, Library Science and Education and did graduate work at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC, where she became fluent in American Sign Language. She now teaches in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program at Thom Collegiate.
