Among Our Souvenirs: A Collection of Cape Breton Poetry and Prose from The Sydney Writing Circle (2008)

This is a collection of prose and poetry written by members of the Sydney Writing Circle, a group supported by the Adult Learning Association of Cape Breton County (ALACBC) in Nova Scotia. The group met for two hours each week to share their writing and improve their writing skills.

The collection includes short stories, poems, and personal narratives on a variety of topics. Several writers share recollections of their childhoods, in settings as diverse as rural Cape Breton and Czechoslovakia on the eve of the Second World War.

The collection also includes essays on such topics as political correctness, fear, and the growing presence of technology in everyday life.

While several writers describe themselves as beginners, the level of work in this collection is quite high and reflects care and commitment on the part of the writers.
