Book review: 44 Hours or Strike! | R. Dubois

by Roxanne Dubois — last modified Jan 10, 2016 09:58 AM
Rarely do you come across fiction for young readers where the backdrop is a labour dispute, let alone one as harsh and violent as the 1931 dressmakers’ strike in Toronto. In 44 hours or strike! (Second Story Press, 2015), Anne Dublin has us follow two young Jewish sisters whose struggle ends up taking place as much within themselves as it does in the cold streets of Hogtown.
