On Wednesday, November 15th at 7:00pm, Geraldine Tuck will be launching her new book, Halifax Explosion Mystery, in the Ondaatje room at the Chester Playhouse. The event is a free, non-ticketed event open to the public.
Geraldine Tuck was born in Sydney, Nova Scotia but moved to Chester when she was in high school. She is now a retired teacher and author of four historical fiction mysteries for youth adults. All of her previous books were set in the 1930’s along Nova Scotia’s South Shore. Junior detectives Dan Veinotte and Becky Wentzell previously solved mysteries involving; a WW1 veteran turned rum runner, a schoolyard bully hunting for gold and skeletal remains found on Oak Island.
Halifax Explosion Mystery follows main character, Dan Veinotte, who is transported back to December 1917, days before the Mount Blanc caught fire in the Halifax Narrows. Suited for young audiences, this novel is in perfect timing with this year being the 100th anniversary of the Halifax explosion.
