The best gifts are made at home. That may be truer this holiday season than ever before. In a year that has kept so many of us close to home, doing our part by staying apart, the most memorable gifts are the ones imagined, planned, and stitched together right here in Atlantic Canada. And believe me, our region’s authors, illustrators, and publishers have had an extremely busy year creating books that your loved ones will treasure long after the lights are put away.
I’m talking about books for the art lover, the history buff, the kitchen wizard and the outdoor enthusiast. The doer, dreamer and eager to learn. And of course, anyone who just loves a great story beautifully told. Help your loved ones dive deep into the lives and work of Peter Powning and Maud Lewis; learn kitchen secrets from top local chef Craig Flinn; bite their nails and nervously turn the page with master of suspense Kevin Major; let Shauntay Grant grow young readers’ minds and take them back to life in Africville.
When you give a local book, you give an escape, an experience, a world. And you give a piece of local culture that lasts a lifetime.
