When Leddy Library’s archivist Sarah Glassford opened her mail last week, she found copies of her new book on Canadian women’s Second World War experiences, aptly titled Making the Best of It. Flipping through the pages she couldn’t help but notice parallels between wartime and the current COVID-19 pandemic — especially the significance of community to both.
