Time to Be Inspired PEI and New Brunswick

Time to Be Inspired PEI and New Brunswick

Inspiration can come from anywhere, but finding it in the perfect book is almost too easy with this collection made specifically for our New Brunwickers and Islanders. These books let you not only read their stories but feel them as well. If you're looking for a book to captivate you until the final page, these are for you.

Slow Seconds

The photographs of George Taylor (1838-1913) offer viewers a fascinating glimpse into nineteenth-century New Brunswick. Taylor's career coincided with a period when photographers began to provide Canadians with images of the "wilderness." Drawing on the knowledge and expertise of Indigenous guides, Taylor travelled not only through settled parts of New Brunswick, but also into the wilderness of the north, providing views of hitherto unfamiliar and unknown terrain and helping to popularize the outdoors as a venue for canoeing, hunting and fishing.

The Bygone Days

Reginald—better known as "Dutch"—Thompson is a multi-faceted storyteller with unforgettable voices—those of Roy from Murray Harbour North, Adelaide from Bunbury, Gus from Chepstow, and countless others—to tell the stories of the Bygone days in Prince Edward Island [sometimes NS, too]. Stories that, without Dutch's talent and care, might be remembered only by family and close friends or lost altogether.

An Extra Dash of Love

A celebration of Down syndrome from parents, grandparents, siblings, coaches, teachers, classmates and many more who feel so fortunate to have such beautiful people in their lives. The letters, poems and artwork came from New Brunswick, across Canada, the US and even Australia. With a forward by Natalie MacMaster, this book would make a special gift for new parents to let them know life will be amazing. It will be officially launched on World Down Syndrome Day (March 21st, 2020). Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Greater Moncton Down Syndrome Association.

Narrow Cradle

In Narrow Cradle, Wade Kearley explores the midlife encounter with mortality and the ways we strive to resist, deny, cheat, and even bargain with it. Grounded in both traditional and modern poetic forms, these poems find in the transience of life a new kind of freedom, a rebirth independent of personal circumstance. In crisp, direct, and vivid language—swerving between sonnet, villanelle, and sestina—Kearley offers a compelling collection by turns vicious, lost, ragged, and regal.

Colville

Colville both honours the legacy of an iconic Canadian artist and explores the contemporary reverberations of his work. Colville was known for being his own man. His paintings depict an elusive tension, a deep sense of danger, capturing moments perpetually on the edge of the unknown. A painter, printmaker, and war artist who drew his inspiration from the world around him, Colville transformed the seemingly mundane events of everyday life into archetypes of the modern condition.

The Truth About Facts

The Truth About Facts makes intimate the seeming noise of information and facts by using the tradition of the alphabet book to get back to basics: to make room for wonder, devotion, and a reinvigorated role for poetry in both quick and methodological thought. Vautour leads his readers on an info-drenched, abecedarian jaunt that is both tongue-in-cheek and unquestionably earnest. Ranging from topics as assorted as Brazil Nuts and Juggling to meditations on Rememoration and the Zodiac, The Truth About Facts moves between the surety of aphorism and the anxieties of critique.
