'Born To The Wild-Journals of a National Park Warden in the Canadian Rockies' by Rob Kaye. An interesting memoir of working in and protecting National Parks.
Andy Maksymchuk has brought in his 3rd book, 'Champions of the Dead-OPP Crime-Fighters Seeking Proof of the Truth'--this is about John Wilson Murray-known as "Canada's Sherlock Holmes".
Karen Raven has brought in her haiku long poem and art called 'Raven at Home'. She is a local author.
We just received Ottawa author, Christopher Massardo's new book, 'The Funny, Horrible and (possibly) True Stories of #Setlife'. After years of working on Fashion sets Christopher has some stories to tell that will either have you laughing or cringing.
Local author, T.G. Brown, has brought in his fiction thriller-'O'Henry' to the store. Kathy has read the book and states it is fantastic and reminds her of Michael Connelly or James Patterson-well known thriller/mystery writers. We have had other customers read his book with same response. How wonderful for a local author. He is currently working on his second novel.
Local Author, Joyce Burkitt Fetterley, has brought in a family memoir called 'One Cornishman's Children'--this is a story of just two children out of the thousands of them descended from the Cornish mining men who worked around the world, beginning in the 19th Century. Check out the book under the Non-Fiction section.
New to the Store: We have BOOK ENDS made of Agate rock; as well as smaller Calcite Bookends and/or paper weights.
And, if you look up above the top shelf of the Book Shelves you will see unique books for sale on display.
We have 'Book themed' jewelery-keep on a key chain, or put on a necklace, earrings, and so on for an unique gift for book lovers. See under Local Artist section.
