This week is Archives Week. Check out the Saskatchewan Council For Archives and Archivists interactive map at https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer… for virtual events that are happening across the province.
Of special note is a talk by Interim University Archivist Crista Bradley, who will be speaking about her new picture book, If These Places Could Talk: Snapshots of Saskatchewan. Written for children ages 4 & up, it has also been garnering significant attention among teachers and history lovers. The book features 100+ historic and contemporary images of Saskatchewan places, past and present, drawn from the collections of archives, museums and libraries around the province. It also includes vibrant original artwork by Wendi Nordell. Crista will speak about the fun she has had on the journey from initial book concept to publication. This event is part of a series of presentations hosted by the Saskatchewan Seniors’ Association. It is free and open to the general public.
