Doris McCarthy 1910-2010

Last week we lost a true Canadian treasure when Dorothy McCarthy passed away. I had the fortune of having tea with her with some lovely booksellers and librarians at her home in Scarborough: Fool's Paradise. It was in celebration of one of her biography Doris McCarthy: My Life...and what a life it was. Although we just had a brief afternoon with her I was blown away by her tenacity and talent. The Globe had a lovely piece about her that you can read.
