Kincardine Pride is pleased to support and join in the celebration of thismonth’s “Freedom to Read Week.” We also celebrate the diversity of books for citizens of all ages. This includes a book recently released titled “Pirate Glitterbeard” by local author and teacher Larissa Crawley and her mom, Oksanna.  


As Larissa has stated in the Kincardine Independent newspaper December 6, 2023. “I thought I want[ed] to write a story about being who you truly are. Not justinclusion for the sake of inclusion but rather to celebrate our differencesand what that really means, what that looks like. And the kids get it, assoon as they read it, (Pirate Glitterbeard).”  Consider reading this book.
