Alberta Bestsellers: July 2021

A children’s book hits the Alberta bestseller list for the first time this month—Howdy, I’m John Ware (Red Barn Books 2020), about the legendary Black cowboy. We spoke with Ayesha Clough, the publisher of Red Barn Books, all about how this book has found success. And congratulations to Carrie Armstrong and Eschia Books as Mother Earth: Plants for Health & Beauty tops the list for the fourth time in a row. Fiction from Freehand Books, NeWest Press, and Stonehouse Publishing also make a great showing this month, as well as Dene history from Durvile Publications.
