Author: Kathleen Durocher
Title: Pour sortir les allumettières de l'ombre
This historical non-fiction book focuses on the working conditions and experiences that hundreds of women workers lived at the E.B. Eddy Match de Hull match factory from the 1850s until the company moved in 1928.
The book explores these women’s living and working situations and discusses the women’s union that was formed. Joanne Legault, owner of Bouquinart Library & Art Gallery, who provided the book suggestion, says that this is a topic that is appreciated by many of their readers.
Bouquinart Library & Art Gallery is a local Aylmer bookstore located at 110 Rue Principale Unité 1.
