by Judy Lowryunforgotten dream
The Brucedale Press is delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of a poetry collection by Judy Lowry, a longtime writer and artist from Grey County. Titled unforgotten dream, the book presents many new works along with some previously published.
A free flowing collection, unforgotten dream offers one poem leading to another, not always smoothly, reminiscent of dissonant music. As is much of Lowry's work, this writing is personal and autobiographical, also concerning itself with the human condition. Social commentary and raw emotion stand side by side whether the poet looks back or contemplates the future .

Skyhill Stories text and art by Lillian Burgess
What began as a simple desire on the part of Lillian Burgess and her husband to build a house and work the land turned into a decades-long relationship with a small piece of the earth they named Skyhill Farm. The slow process of shaping and in turn, being shaped by this farm, has given all beings who live there a home, a place where they truly belong.
Skyhill Stories offers a quilt-like piecing together of many years of observations. Some early readers have suggested this book is a love story...The Brucedale Press invites you to join in celebrating the launch of Skyhill Stories by Lillian Burgess.

Tooling Around with Michael O'Neill takes readers down into trenches, up ladders, and around a hilly farm in midwestern Ontario. One day in the barn, the next in a wet basement, Mike applies humour in all situations. Equally handy with pitchfork, pipe wrench, and pen, he spins tales of on-the-job challenges and family fun.
Meet his helper Lady Bertha, the heifers that almost got away, and the grandsons who want him to play in the tree house. You'll chuckle as you follow Mike into crawl spaces and attics. Ride with him as Big Zed tackles thistles and a not-quite-all-terrain vehicle gives him a few surprises.
Michael O'Neill's stories have appeared in the weekly Lucknow Sentinel, a pair of independently published books, and the collection Our Farmily Farm: stories from Bruce & Grey.
