Author and blogger Arthur Joyce starts a round of touring this autumn with his new book, Laying the Children’s Ghosts to Rest (Hagios Press 2014).

He’ll start readings in Ontario, where he has a busy schedule. Joyce says the highlight will be a Peterborough event in celebration of “Ontario Home Child Day” September 28, although his reading will be held the day before at Northminster United Church. The Ontario Home Child Day program has been organized by the ever-resourceful Ivy Sucee, who at 90 years young, may be one of Peterborough’s most active citizens. It’s fitting that she has received both Peterborough’s Lifetime Achievement Award and a Queen’s Jubilee Medal for her work on behalf of the former Hazelbrae Home that saw 9,000 children, mostly girls, pass through its doors on the way to indentured labour on local farms.
