On May 4, 2020 Robin Vasquez, Special Advisor to the President of 'Holland America Line' wrote to me, “We recently received the gift you sent, your book, “The Broken Silence” at our Seattle office. We are truly grateful that you have shared such a thought provoking and insightful literary work with us.
Indeed, the relevance of this memoir along with what is happening with the world today, provides a special perspective. We are honored that you have chosen to share this with us.”
I am also pleased to let you all know that the book is now with Library, Archives Canada and also with Ottawa Public Library. And a number of libraries in U.S and Canada are in the process of cataloging it.
