On February 2nd at 7pm at McNally Robinson in Winnipeg, the Faculty of Human Ecology is hosting a book launch to continue the 100 year celebration of the faculty.  I grabbed the following information from the McNally Robinson website.

This work celebrates the past 100 years of innovation and education in the University of Manitoba Faculty of Human Ecology, beginning in 1910 with the establishment of the Home Economics Faculty and finishing the present day. The text compiles photographs and testimony from graduates and alumni.
