Hope and Survival: A Story of the Halifax Explosion
This brand-new children’s book was written and illustrated by Laurie Swim to accompany the monumental community art quilt project commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion.
Hope and Survival tells the story of Jess, a young girl caught up in the aftermath of the disaster. It is richly illustrated with Laurie’s unique quilt art, on snow-dyed fabric, and the book acknowledges the legacy of hope and survival that continues to this day. It is a beautifully original gift — perfect for those young and young in spirit. Each book is personally signed by Laurie.
