I took a picture of the latest Chicken Soup book on the shelf at McNally Robinson Book Store in Winnipeg. It is called Chicken Soup for the Soul: O Canada The Wonders of Winter:101 Stories about Bad Weather, Good Times and Great Sports. There is a story I wrote on page 252 called Above and Beyond. It is about a bitterly cold day when the locks on my van froze and a very kind car salesman came to my rescue. As part of my payment I received ten copies of the book. Contact me if you’d like one. If I don’t give them all away my family knows what’s going to be one of the gifts in their stockings this Christmas.
The Chicken Soup books are a bit of a phenomena. The original book was rejected by 140 publishers before finally going into print in 1993. Twenty years later there are 100 million copies of the series in 54 languages. The books are distributed by Simon and Schuster.
