Once Upon A Bookshelf

Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Listed: Newfoundland and Labrador

I was thinking about grouping all of Atlantic Canada together, but I’ve been able to find ten books that take place in Newfoundland and Labrador. This province is the eastern-most province in Canada, and is somewhere I have wanted to go for a long, LONG time (and no, not JUST for the fact that Great Big Sea is from there).

  1. The Shipping News by E Annie Proulx. Originally Published 1993. LT.
  2. The Chrysalids by John Wyndham. Originally Published 1955. LT.
  3. The Bird Artist by Howard Norman. Originally Published 1994. LT.
  4. The Custodian of Paradise by Wayne Johnston. Originally Published 2006. LT.
  5. River Thieves by Michael Crummey. Originally Published 2001. LT.
  6. Kit’s Law by Donna Morrissey. Originally Published 1991. LT.
  7. The Long Run by Leo Furey. Originally Published 2004. LT.
