A site with a focus on Canadian History
The "canadashistory" site, whose mission is "to make the discovery of our nation's past relevant, engaging, empowering and accessible to all Canadians", has a great subsection that talks about history books we should all be reading! This page is a repository for current book reviews, the latest featured titles and video interviews with authors. You can join their online book club or see the top history bestsellers for the past year.
This is a good place to get recommendations for your adult friends, and there are titles that will make your Socials department head smile.
