International Baccalaureate Spreading the Loyalist Story

Congratulations Jean!

Author Jean Rae Baxter UE shared this fabulous news recently:

I have just given permission for an excerpt from my novel The Way Lies North (Ronsdale Press, 2007) to be included in a workbook to be used by International Baccalaureate students, ages 11 – 12. The excerpt tells of the decision by the protagonist’s family to flee their home in the Mohawk Valley following the defeat of General Burgoyne’s army in the Battle of Saratoga. The excerpt is two pages long. It will be used to develop the students’ critical and research skills.

As well as being delighted to have my writing selected for this purpose, I am thrilled to know that the excerpt will be read by students worldwide. Hopefully, some of them will wish to read the whole book. Even if they don’t, they will at least learn something about the Loyalists that many of them would otherwise never know.

The workbook will be published in May 2014. Thirty thousand copies will be printed.
