New Books


Elle Andra-WarnerElle Andra-Warner (BAí97) has published four books including: Robert Service: A Great Canadian Poet's Romance with the North; The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald; Hudsonís Bay Company: The Rollicking Saga of Canadaís Fur Traders; and The Mounties, Tales of Adventure and Danger from the Early Days.
"Ever since I was a young child, Iíve always wanted to be an author with published books," she says.
"Ten years ago I started my way toward that goal and last year, the childhood dream became a reality when my first national book was published. Thereís an adrenaline high when you walk into bookstores across Canada and see your book on the shelves. And I feel like Iím just getting started."

Andra-Warner is working on her fifth book for Altitude Publishing on the shipwrecks of the Great Lakes, and a book on Sir John Sparrow Thompson (1845-1894), for Jackfruit Press, in a new children's book series on the Prime Ministers of Canada.
