After a very successful book launch at the FWIO Provincial Conference in Pembroke in 2017, the book, Ordinary to Extraordinary: 150 Stories as unique as the women who lived them, is now available to purchase online or by contacting the FWIO Provincial Office. It is also available as an ebook.

The stories are real-life stories that WI Members contributed for a project to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. The 150 stories were selected out of 350 submissions. The stories range from a single incident to a full life story; from ordinary life to tragic events; from the horrific to the humorous. There are stories of living as a child in another country, immigration to Canada, growing up in Ontario, meeting the love of their life, and the struggles of life – fires, floods, and tornadoes. Some stories recount the role of the WI in their lives; their pride of accomplishments and support for their community.

The price per book has been reduced from $25.00 to $10.00 ($9.52 + 5% tax) plus shipping, if applicable. The length of the book is 300 pages, with some photos and an index.
