Recent Arrivals Winged Writings Perhaps there's something in the water at the Lester B. Pearson Building that predisposes employees to write books. Peter Pigott, a Treaty Custodian at Foreign Affairs Canada has just released his 12th book titled On Canadian Wings. Mr. Pigott wrote his first book while posted in Hong Kong. Upon returning to Ottawa after a posting in The Hague, he began to take writing more seriously.
Mr. Pigott says, "It was coming back to Ottawa that was the shock...we were so broke that when our house needed a new roof, I began writing - and writing about what I knew best - aviation."
Since then Mr. Pigott has managed to combine his fulltime career at Foreign Affairs with his after-hours authorship. On Canadian Wings: A Century of Flight is a photo essay on Canadian aviation.
