Congratulations to Ursula Kelly and Andrea Procter! The Foresters' Scribe and A Long Journey have made it on the shortlist for the Newfoundland and Labrador Book Award for Non-Fiction! The Foresters’ Scribe is a poignant and comprehensive study of the Newfoundland Forestry Companies of the First World War, while A Long Journey examines the previously untold history of residential schools in Labrador and Newfoundland. They are joined on the shortlist by Gemma Hickey with their work Almost Feral, a book about Hickey’s journey walking across the island of Newfoundland to raise awareness for survivors of religious institutional abuse. Congratulations once again to all shortlisted authors!
