I have borrowed the book "Roots Beneath the Pavement" by Laurel Buck from the Verdun Library (above the SHGV) corner Bannantyne and Brown Blvd. The book is about her life in Verdun in the 30s and 40s. I heard so much about this book on this site that I had to read it. I only read the first pages and I am sure to enjoy it as Laurel is from Claude Street wich is just around the corner from Galt where I lived and we seemingly are from the same era. I will let you know my impression after reading the complete book.
P.N. The library number is 923.7714 BUCK and may be available from your local library or can be purchased from a local bookstore.
