One Summer in Whitney Pier

One Summer in Whitney Pier

by The Hon. Mayann Francis

art by Tamara Thiébaux-Heikalo

Whitney pier’s diverse community springs to life in colourful artwork and a story from Mayann’s childhood.

School is out for summer, but 11-year-old Mayann’s best friends are away. Her parents get her to help them cook traditional Caribbean foods—coo-coo with corn meal, souse made from pig feet, oxtail, fishcake, johnnycake, and more. As she learns to embroider, she gets a great idea that will bring the whole community together.

A celebration of breaking bread with your neighbours!
