Blue Heron Books is on my map. How could you fail in the book business with a name like Shelley Macbeth? She runs great events and never disappoints with hundreds in attendance. She knows each of her customers and their tastes. Shelley is that great combination of woman of letters and an entrepreneur. Her staff loves books and thrive on recommendations. —

Culturally, blood has a mystique all its own, and what it stands for – tribe, family, race, gender – has divided us since the beginning of time.
Blood pulses through our religions, through literature and the visual arts, and every time it pools or spills, we learn a little more about what brings human beings together and what divides us.
Renowned author Lawrence Hill takes us on a fascinating journey through the story of blood. Check out what the Globe and Mail had to say about Blood: The Stuff of Life
