  • “I've noticed,” said Mr. Keuner, “that a lot of people are put off by our teaching because we know the answer to everything. Couldn’t we, in the interests of propaganda, draw up a list of questions which appear to us quite unresolved?”

Miriam’s Nature Calendar

The 2021 edition of the nature calendar featuring photographs by Miriam Garfinkle, which I have been producing since 2019, is now out. They’re almost gone, but a few copies are still available. If you would like a copy, please send an email to the address above. Cost is $10 + $5 for mailing in Canada. If you are in Toronto, we may be able to arrange a pick-up rather than mail.
Here are links to this year’s calendar, as well as to the two previous ones: 2021, 2020, and 2019.

Miriam’s Nature Calendar 2021



M is for Miriam

If you would like a copy of M is for Miriam, my children’s book about my late partner Miriam Garfinkle, please send me an email.

It’s an alphabet book, illustrated by Emma Lightstone, with each page devoted to some aspect of Miriam’s life: C is for Community, D is for Doctor, G is for Garden, L is for Laughter, N is for Nature, P is for Piano, Q is for Questions, S is for Solidarity, W is for Waffles....

It’s written for kids aged roughly three to nine, but people of any age who knew Miriam would probably like it.

Paperback, 32 pages, including the cover; dimensions are 11" x 9". There are about 70 words per page, and many illustrations.

Cost is $20 + $5 for mailing in Canada. If you are in Toronto, we may be able to arrange a pick-up rather than mail.
