Ted Harrison: Painting Paradise by Katherine Gibson, Crown Publications
This moving biography of the much-celebrated artist is written by a bestselling author and merges the artist's compelling life story with images of his most important works. It is the first-ever biography of a painter whose vivid paintings of the Yukon have transcended regional art to become iconic of Canada itself.
Us and Them by Sid Tafler, NetBC Publishing
Written by a popular Victoria writer and media consultant, this memoir traces the evolution of Canada's racial ethos over the past 50 years through the experiences of his Montreal family. Sid and I worked closely together on early drafts of the manuscript to create a structure, theme and approach to this highly personal and thoughtful memoir. "The story is told with skill and sensitivity, with a clear eye back and an optimistic eye forward."
