The Observer (Sarnia) - - NEWS - OB­SERVER STAFF

A char­i­ta­ble book project fo­cus­ing on lo­cal busi­nesses and the peo­ple be­hind them is launch­ing a sec­ond edi­tion.

Since its launch in May, about 4,000 copies of the Year of Lo­cal — a project by Rich Bouchard and Laura Greaves — have sold.

Plans are to re­lease a 75- to 100story sec­ond edi­tion in the spring, Bouchard said. The first has 68.

All pro­ceeds go to char­ity, he said. The price of the book is $25. Copies are avail­able at The Book Keeper.

“It’s been a lot of fun get­ting to know ev­ery­one through this process and we are hon­oured to help get their sto­ries out into the com­mu­nity,” Bouchard said.

Other busi­nesses and not-for­prof­its in­ter­ested in be­ing fea­tured are asked to sign up. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit yearoflo­cal.com.

Jenn Mc­col­man-Snauwaert reads a copy of the Year of Lo­cal at The Book Keeper in Sar­nia in May. A sec­ond edi­tion of the book is planned for next spring.
