My nonfiction book Historic Walks of Regina and Moose Jaw (Red Deer Press) has been nominated by Heritage Regina for a City of Regina Municipal Heritage Award in the Education category.
From the letter in support of the nomination, signed by Dr. J. William Brennan, chairman of Heritage Regina:
Reginans and visitors to our city alike will find this a well-written and informative overview of many of the historic buildings that have shaped and continue to shape Regina’s urban landscape.
I’m very pleased Heritage Regina has found Historic Walks worthy of nomination: as I noted in the book’s acknowledgements, if not for all the work Heritage Regina and many other interested individuals have done over the years to create walking tours and research the buildings of architectural interest in the city, the book would have been impossible to write (at least by me!).
The Municipal Heritage Awards are presented by the Mayor at the City Council meeting closest to National Heritage Day, the third Monday in February.
