Meet Allison Lawlor and have her sign your latest copy of “The Saddest Ship Afloat” at Chapters Bayers Lake. Lawlor’s latest Stories of Our Past follows the MS St. Louis, a jewish refugee ship that left Germany on the eve of the Second World War with over 900 Jews seeking refuge. Refused safe harbour at Pier 21 in Halifax, the ship returned to Europe and over the course of the war an estimated 250 died in Nazi-run concentration camps.
