Thirteen Minutes is off to the Printers!

The files for Thirteen Minutes have gone to the printers. Thanks to Bob for his last minute revisions and to Derek Mah for his cover design! See below for back cover text:

A graphic fable of a family conflicted by ideology, scarred by tragedy yet joined by love.

In 1928, an internship with famed equal persons activist Nellie McClung leads Holly Burnside to clerk for the Alberta Eugenics Board, a group which prides itself on the efficiency of their reviews for government mandated sterilization — 13 minutes a case. She and her two brothers, one a politically charged performance artist and the other a star player in the collapsing Prairie Hockey League, all struggle with finding their place in the world. Follow them over four decades as they encounter endless sorrows and joys from both society and the people closest to them.

James Davidge and Bob Prodor (The Duchess Ranch of Old John Ware) collaborate again on a thoughtfully crafted tale.

Thirteen Minutes was made with support from the Canada Council for the Arts - Alberta Creative Development Initiative.
