Farley Mowatt Remembered June 16 - August 29

The current display at the W.D. Jordan Special Collections and Music Library begins with a tribute to Farley McGill Mowatt (May 12, 1921 - May 6, 2014) showcasing his publishing history and especially his books of the Canadian north which literally put him on Wolfe's "Literary Map of Canada" (1979),seen right. Ever controversial, Mowat's last radio interview was in protest of Parks Canada decision to provide Wi-Fi in our national parks.

The natural world completes our display with a selection of books and posters on fishing in Canada, and a display of charming 1930s "Rockwellian" covers of The Country Guide, Canada's magazine of farm life.
