Dundurn in Montreal

Posted on March 6 by Kyle in News

Dundurn hit the road in February to visit booksellers in Montreal for the Montreal Book Fair. Enclosed in their rental Fiat, sales manager Synora Van Drine and publicist Michelle Melski battled snowbanks and cold weather to find what they love most: books and booksellers.

The first stop for Synora and Michelle was Bibliophile, an English-language bookstore that has been in business for over thirty years. Inside those cozy walls is a curated collection that is both intimate and wide-reaching. Be sure to sign up to their newsletter for book reviews!

As they do every year on November 11, members of the Britannia Yacht Club in Ottawa’s West End remember those who lost their lives in defense of our country. Facing Lac Deschenes, standing bareheaded before the flagpole, they unsuccessfully attempt to shelter against the biting wind while the Sea Cadet bugler plays “Last Post” and the Commodore recites “In Flanders Fields”. If one listens carefully, out on the water, the sound of a World War II flying boat taking off can be heard.

Tell us about your book.

NONE SO BLIND examines justice itself, not in the abstract, but with all the flaws, biases, doubts, and best efforts of those who strive to carry it out. When a convicted college professor is found dead weeks after being released on parole, Ottawa Police Inspector Michael Green is forced to re-examine the case upon which his career and reputation were built.
