Oldies but Goodies

A few of our favourite authors start the summer off right with a touch of nostalgia by Meaghan Laaper

As summer finally draws in, patio chairs come out, winter coats get packed away, and those slumbering summer freckles spread out across sun-warmed cheeks, old memories of summers past bubble to the surface. Barefoot on the back porch, with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” playing over the radio, or maybe Cindi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” was more up your alley. Either way, it’s time to fill your summer days and get that ’80s and ’90s nostalgia flowing! These Goose Lane authors did just that, digging up some relatable favourites from their past.

The Great Trees of NB 101

New Brunswick is home to more than five billion trees, many native to the Acadian forest and some exotics introduced by settlers. For this new edition of The Great Trees of New Brunswick (the first edition was published in 1987), forester David Palmer and conservationist Tracy Glynn have prepared a book that doubles as an informative guide to the province’s native and introduced species and a compendium of “champion” trees, drawn from nominations from all corners of the province.

As of January 2018, 50 of the original 52 trees were accounted for. Of the 50 trees, 27 were still alive, 19 were gone, and the status of 4 trees was uncertain.

"Dangerous Enemy Sympathizers" 101

May 7th is the official publishing date for "Dangerous Enemy Sympathizers"

What we don’t always acknowledge are the internment of Japanese Canadians, sympathizers, and those who opposed the war effort. Canada’s self-identity tends to be absolved of guilt.
