When Barb Pratt opened Blue Heron Books 20 years ago, she had a life-long dream to be at the helm of a bookstore, a background in publishing and a confidence in the need for a local bookstore. From its humble beginnings the store has become a stalwart on the main drag, and a hub for all things literary.
Shelley Macbeth, the store’s present day impresario, is proud of Uxbridge’s arrival on the literary map of Canada. The store has brought headline authors such as Timothy Findley, Michael Ondaatje, and Nino Ricci to town. An original, and continuing, store mandate is to foster early literacy and keep kids enthusiastic about reading. The store is a hub for the community and a bastion of calm chaos where everyone is welcome, even the local dogs that drop by with their owners for a treat from the tin kept under the front counter.
