Join us to celebrate the publication of Karolyn Smardz Frost's new book, "Steal Away Home."

In this compelling work of narrative non-fiction, Governor General’s Award winner Karolyn Smardz Frost brings Cecelia’s story to life. Cecelia was a teenager when she made her dangerous bid for freedom from the United States, across the Niagara River and into Canada.

Karolyn Smardz Frost is an archaeologist, historian and award-winning author who teaches at York and Acadia. Her book I’ve Got a Home in Glory Land won the Governor General’s Award for Non-Fiction in 2007. She co-edited A Fluid Frontier: Slavery, Resistance and the Underground Railroad in the Detroit River Borderland, which won the Historical Society of Michigan Book Award. She divides her time between Toronto and Nova Scotia’s beautiful Annapolis Valley.
