Dear all,


I trust you will not mind that I use this forum to announce the publication, by UNB Libraries, of The Cottage Girls and Whale Cove Cottages: An Oral History by Robert J. Spiller. This edition is a project of UNB Libraries inscribed in the larger initiative known as the New Brunswickana Project. The latter has several goals one of which is the preservation of New Brunswick literary and book history.


The Cottage Girls of Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, were educated New England women of their time (late 19th century to mid-20th) who started a summer colony that continues to this day. One early guest was the American writer Willa Cather, who like many other literary types, found inspiration in this island refuge. The Cottage Girls welcomed readers as well as writers and shared with their guests a well-furnished library that survives to this day at Whale Cove. A project is underway to compile and publish a catalogue of that library.


Please see attached for more information.
