Leaving the Fold ( visu )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
"Tells the story of five young people born and raised within the ultra-Orthodox Jewish world who no longer wish to remain on the inside. As children they grew up in a closed society where deviation from the rules of conduct is often punishable by ostracism, intimidation or worse. As young adults they pay a steep price for abandoning their parents and community to seek the freedom to make their own choices. From the Hasidic enclaves of Montreal, Brooklyn and Jerusalem come stories of conflict, coercion and struggle. Tinged with pain and unexpected humor, "Leaving the Fold" documents the process by which our five heroes emerged from a strictly controlled society into a baffling secular world of endless choices: What should I wear? What shall I become? Who will I marry? Once everything was decided for them. Now they must decide for themselves. But the answers don't always come easily"--Container
Burning water : a new western ( visu )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
At Fiona Lauridsen's farm, just outside the hamlet of Rosebud, Alberta, Fiona and her family got skin burns in the shower. Fiona claims that EnCana, Canada's largest natural gas company, contaminated the aquifer by drilling (fracking) for coal bed methane, a new source of natural gas extraction that often uses chemicals for drilling. A government minister blamed the contamination on improper well maintenance on the part of the farmer. Other scientists disagree, and Fiona thinks the government is deflecting attention away from the negative consequences of an energy boom that's bringing record profits to the province. --

She has the distinction of beating out Wayne Gretzky as Canadian Athlete of the Year in 1981 and that same year was also inducted as an Officer of the Order of Canada. In her spare time Susan managed to earn a PhD, run an osteoporosis research unit and successfully lobby the International Olympic Committee for a separate women's trap shooting division --- a dream which was realized at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
