Local artist Jill Crosby and Grenville-sur-la-Rouge author Gordon Fraser met recently to look at Fraser’s shipment of newly-published books. “Song of the Spirit River” is a collection of six short stories based on local lore and local history, says Fraser, a long-time resident of the area. A pen-and-ink sketch by Crosby introduces each short story and she worked with the author to create a map which ties in to each of the stories. Song of the Spirit River is for sale at The Review offices in Vankleek Hill. Fraser engaged the services of The Review for editing, layout and help with online publishing. photo Louise Sproule
While you are here, we have a small ask.
More people are reading The Review than ever before — across our many platforms. So far, we have not put up a paywall to limit the stories you can read. We want to keep you in the news loop. But advertising revenues are increasingly going to the big two: you know who they are. If you value The Review’s independent, local community journalism, or you value the many ways we support dozens of community organizations in their endeavours, consider supporting our work. It takes time, effort and professional smarts to stay on top of community news and present well-researched, objective news articles on issues which matter to you.
If you read stories on this website, or you have come here from an Instant Article post on Facebook, think about subscribing. It would be a vote of confidence for the work that we do, and for the future well-being of your community.
