    Abstract:
    In this paper, I situate myself as a reader reading from the former temperance colony of Saskatoon. Taking as my starting point John Kessler's heuristic device of a Persian-period "charter group" (2006), I ask how my situation in Saskatoon affects how I read the book of Haggai, and how my reading of Haggai affects my understanding of Saskatoon. I conclude with some remarks on the possibility of examining my readings typologically; that is, seeing my readings as "types" for Canadian scholars abroad and in Canada studying the texts and text-worlds of Persian-period Yehud.
