About the authors

In the fall of 2006, Roy MacGregor, veteran newspaperman, magazine writer, and author of books, came to campus. Since 2002, MacGregor had been writing columns for the Globe and Mail, but he had a long and distinguished career in hand before he came to the national newspaper. He has won National Newspaper Awards and in 2005 was named an officer in the Order of Canada. He is the author of more than 40 books — 28 of them in the internationally successful Screech Owls mystery series for young readers — on subjects ranging from Canada, to the James Bay Cree, to hockey. That fall, he spoke to a packed room in the St. Thomas chapel. After the lecture, Herménégilde Chiasson, the Acadian poet, artist, and New Brunswick's Lieutenant Governor of the day, hosted a reception at the majestic Old Government House on the banks of the St. John River. MacGregor spent the evening surrounded by young journalists and the conversation continued late into the night. After all, there were more than three decades of stories to tell.

Editorial Reviews

 

Ottawa Citizen, on <em>The Ice Chips and the Magical Rink</em>

“Moments of insight and empathy don’t jar or weigh down the story, but are deftly woven into the hometown hockey narrative. . . . It’s not surprising how well-crafted the book is given the pedigree of its authors.”

Quill & Quire, on<em> The Ice Chips and the Magical Rink</em>
