Linda Granfield has taken her life-long interest in history and worked it into more than 30 non-fiction titles for young readers and adults. Her research travels have taken her to China, France, the United Kingdom, and all over North America.
Many of her books deal with war and remembrance and she has been a consultant on various documentary and feature films about the First World War, and the Magee family in history. Granfield has also provided historical notes/interviews for television and radio programs, managed media sites for First World War subjects, and has written articles of "first-time-finds" for historical journals.
Granfield has made new discoveries about John McCrae ("In Flanders Fields") and she is currently working on two books for adult readers: one an omnibus of McCrae's writing, and another about the life of the Reverend John Gillespie Magee, an American hero of The Rape of Nanking.

Lively, colourful (no outlines, no graphs!) and, yes, humorous VIRTUAL presentations (Zoom) are available:
"Recent Discoveries" -- new "finds" I've uncovered about the life of John McCrae.
Remembrance subjects (First World War, Second World War, In Flanders Fields, The Unknown Soldier, Afghanistan War, Vimy Ridge, and others)
NOTE: Please book early for Remembrance Week presentations. Those sessions are booked quickly. I also do sessions about April 9th (Vimy Ridge), the second official day of remembrance in Canada.
Each virtual presentation (power-point) is one hour long: 45 minute presentation + 15 minutes Q&A. One short 'practice session' on Zoom, a few days/one day before the presentation, is included in the fee.
