Welcome to Summer 2024! We are bursting at the seams this season with a profusion of exhibitions, events, anniversaries, performanc- es, memories, tours, workshops, opportunities, and so much more. Definitely get your daytimer out as you wander through these pages so you won’t miss any of the excitement Grey-Bruce offers over the next few months.

Here at The Ginger Press, we’re looking at another amazing year of publishing a whole whack of remarkable new books: The View from Coffin Ridge: A Childhood Exhumed, a memoir by Gwen Lamont was launched at two incredible sold-out events at Coffin Ridge Boutique Winery in Annan. The Jewel of Georgian Bay: Celebrating 50 Years of the Chi-Cheemaun by Richard J. Thomas was launched during the Chi-Cheemaun Festival in Tobermory. Also this summer, look for Aging in Place, a new collection of local essays, narratives, poems, and sketches by Grey-Bruce writers assembled by Joan Beecroft. And, although we didn’t publish The Vascular Plants of the Bruce Peninsula by Joe Johnson, we are pleased to carry his self-published encyclopedic revised and updated volume detailing the many species to be found in Ontario’s most famous botanical destination.

The Ginger Press Bookshop is now 100% Grey-Bruce content: we carry the finest selection of new and experienced local books in the universe! Although we’re only open Thursday to Saturday from 10:00 to 2:00 (our most recent books are also available online at www.gingerpress.com), we spend the rest of our time working on local literary projects such as this magazine. And we’ve published over 150 local books to date. Please stop by for a browse soon!
