“I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.”–L.M. Montgomery

About the Author
Mona Fertig's father, George Fertig (1915-1983), was one of the unheralded artists of BC and she grew up acutely aware of the politics of art. The Life and Art of George Fertig took her 15 years to research and write. This led her to publish the UABC series, written by authors; Adrienne Brown, Peter Busby, Claudia Cornwall, Christina Johnson-Dean, Eve Lazarus, Kerry Mason, Wendy-Newbold Patterson, Sheryl Salloum and Monika Ullmann. Fertig was made a Vancouver Literary Landmark in 2017. There was a retrospective of George Fertig's work at the Burnaby Art Gallery in 2010.
