Join author Jill Martin Bouteillier for a talk on her book Sable Island in Black and White, shortlisted for both the 2017 Robbie Robertson Dartmouth Book Award (Non-Fiction) and 2017 Democracy 250 Atlantic Book Award for Historical Writing.

Sable Island in Black and White was born from images captured on glass plates and kodak 120 spools by young Trixie Bouteillier, Jill Martin Bouteillier’s great aunt, when photography was still in its infancy. Time travel back more than a century to experience life on Sable Island. From shipwrecks to family musicales be prepared to walk the dunes in the footsteps of those ordinary people who did extraordinary things 180 miles from anywhere.
