On November 7, 1990, we lost a wonderful author, Hugh MacLennan.


He wrote great books such as Barometer Rising – a story that covers the Halifax explosion, which he survived when he was just ten years old (1941), Two Solitudes (1945), The Watch That Ends The Night (1959) and others.


I highly recommend visiting the Hugh MacLennan Papers Online Project to read more about this award winning author.
