Author Terri M. Roberts and publisher Emily McEwan gave a workshop presentation on the book Fionn MacCool and the Salmon of Knowledge to the Nova Scotia Social Studies Teachers Association Conference on October 26, 2018.

Bradan Press has produced a free teachers’ resource to accompany the book, giving historical and cultural context for the story, a pronunciation guide for the 9 Gaelic vocabulary words taught in the book, and two activity sheets that can be adapted for students and children’s groups of all ages.

We are also pleased to announce that Fionn MacCool and the Salmon of Knowledge has been approved by the Nova Scotia Department of Education for the Nova Scotia School Book Bureau. The poetry book Ràithean airson Sireadh / Seasons for Seeking by Lodaidh MacFhionghain (Lewis MacKinnon) has also been approved for the Book Bureau.
