I did a few more Canadian releases this afternoon, here they are:
2. Famous Dead Canadians 2, by Joanne Stanbridge http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14695608
I left this book on a nice shady bench (it's in the 40s with the humidity here right now!) outside of the Norwich Museum and Archives in Norwich, ON. It's not visible in the release photo, but there is a Government of Ontario historical plaque there dedicated to one of the people profiled in the book, as she was born in Norwich.
3. Canadian Inventors (Scholastic Canada Biographies), by Maxine Trottier http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14441975
I left this book in London, ON at St. George's Public School. I chose this location because the book is geared to kids in the elementary age range and one of the inventors featured in the book was just a kid herself (in grade 6) when she began her career as an inventor. At the time, she was a student at St. George's, which is why I chose that school specifically. It's summer vacation here right now, so I left the book hanging on a fence right up at the street's sidewalk. The fence forms a walkway which is the only way to enter the schoolyard at this time of year. The yard contains a play structure, a baseball diamond, and some basketball courts, so I'm hoping kids might still go there over the break to play. The book is hard to see in the release photo, but it's there in the foreground on the left side.
4. 150 Years of Canada: Year-by-Year Fascinating Facts, by A. H. Jackson http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/15106246/
In the town where I lived as a small child, they are creating something called the Prime Ministers Path. In the grounds around a building called Castle Kilbride, they are gradually installing statues of each of Canada's PMs. The fifth statue was just unveiled on 28 June. Since this book gives small glimpses of what was going on in Canada year-by-year throughout our history from Confederation to the present, I thought that the work-in-progress path featuring all of our PMs was a fitting place to leave this. It gave me a chance to check out the statues that have been installed since last time I was there, in January of 2017, and I left the book in the hands of the newest statue, Kim Campbell. Since she was Canada's first female PM she definitely made the cut of Fascinating Facts, and as her statue is newly unveiled I figured there would be a lot of traffic around her this weekend. I guess I was right because I made my release note in the car on the way home, and between the time I submitted the release note and the time I uploaded the photo I'd taken on my phone, it was journalled by an AF!
