Judith Drinnan

Judith Drinnan immigrated to Canada from the United Kingdom in the early seventies to teach in Montreal and then moved to Fort Simpson in the Northwest Territories. She has resided there ever since.

She bought out the Fledgling Books store in Yellowknife and was a bookseller, a career that has been varied, exciting and fun-filled for over 40 years.

Over the years, Judith has served on the Prairie Division of the National Book Festival Committee as well on the Board of the Booksellers Association.
