my_canadaLocal author Helene Viel will be in the store on Saturday, April 12 to sign copies of her new book My Canada: Every Step of the Way from 11:00am to 1:00pm.

From the jacket:

“A story of endurance and dreams fulfilled. After a decade of planning and dreaming, Helene Viel from Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec, and her husband Ole Olson from Broadview, Saskatchewan, marked their retirement by walking across Canada, from the Arctic Ocean to the Pacific to the Atlantic.

Maintaining a pace of 40 to 50 kilometres a day through Canada’s four seasons, the walkers passed through two territories and ten provinces, completing the longest recorded walk across Canada: from sea to sea to sea. Ole did it all: 10,081 kilometres. Helene, 66, achieved a fantastic 8,107 kilometres. This is her story.”

We hope to see you all on Saturday!
