The short story collection to mark the 100th anniversary (December 6, 2017) of the Halifax Explosion will be called The Coldest December.
Here is a mock-up of the cover. (subject to change)
Quarter Castle Publishing will release The Coldest December in November 2017. It will contain short stories written by Nova Scotia authors. The book will also include information and photographs to help explain the tragic events that changed the lives of thousands of people and decimated the shorelines of the twin cities, Halifax and Dartmouth.

Laura Groom’s grandmother was six months old when it happened. They celebrate her 100th birthday this summer in Cape Breton. Laura Groom lives on Acorn Ave in Lantz. May be a story there as well.
Doreen, I know Laura. Thank you. That’s amazing. This collection of stories are fiction though. But her story would make a great magazine or newspaper article.
Looking forward to this one.
