Sandra Joyce: British Home Children
Since the launch of her debut book at Upper Canada Village on September 28, 2011, native Torontonian Sandra Joyce, has given over 90 presentations on British Home Children.
A graduate of Ryerson’s Journalism program, she became interested in the British Home Children after finding out from a passenger list at Halifax’s Pier 21, that her father had been one. He had passed away a few years prior to this revelation and Sandra, surprised that this huge part of Canadian history was unknown to her, decided this was a story that needed to be told. Her book, “The Street Arab – The Story of a British Home Child” is in its third printing.
