"A fresh generation of children's books is finding the grace in Halifax's worst moment — a massive explosion that levelled much of the city 100 years ago but inspired acts of kindness that still resonate." — Michael Tutton, The Canadian Press

GLEN MARGARET AUTHOR MAKES IT A BAKER'S DOZEN
"At first, I couldn't believe it when I heard the proposal," notes author John Boileau, "and my first reaction was 'What? Not another Halifax Explosion book!'"
Boileau of Glen Margaret and the author of a dozen books, as well as several hundred magazine and newspaper articles, describes his reaction to a January 2016 telephone call from John MacIntyre of Lunenburg's MacIntyre & Purcell Publishing. "I was aware of some seven or eight new explosion books to be published in 2017 for the explosion's centennial," Boileau continues, "and, quite frankly, I just couldn't see adding any more to an already crowded market. But then John explained his concept and I was hooked."
Congratulations to Amy Jo Ehman. Her new release, Saskatoon: A History in Words and Pictures, is the number one bestselling non-fiction book on the McNally Robinson booksellers list in Saskatchewan.
