Forget-Me-Not-The-Factory-Voice_alu_blogfeatured

~ If you’re a regular on our blog, you’ve probably already seen Forget-Me-Not where we get historical with a feature book about under-represented moments of Canada’s distant and near past. And if you have no idea what we’re talking about, get caught up! (And check out our history timeline, while you're at it?)

We went from the 40s to the aughts in this week's featured Forget-Me-Not books with the 1942 USS Truxton shipwreck, to the factories of the 40s where #nastywomen united (yeah!), to the Sixties Scoop-era, to life inside WWII, and finally into the state of the Canadian health care system.

What Else We're Reading

 

ALU Sales Manager Tan recently read Johnnie Walker's Redheaded Stepchild (Playwrights Canada Press) and had this to say:

If you dug into Raziel Reid's When Everything Feels Like the Movies (Arsenal Pulp) a couple of years ago, pre- or post-controversy, then Redheaded Stepchild will feel like poking through the childhood photos of a familiar friend. Nicholas is an adorkable teenager, which made this short play a fast, thoroughly enjoyable read.
