About the Author

Jan DeGrass writes in Sechelt, BC, where she is the Arts & Entertainment columnist for Coast Reporter and editor of Coast Life magazine. For the past twenty-five years she has written in every genre, from sparkling arts news to exotic travel narrative to a cookbook of potluck recipes. She received a national award for a business article that furthered Canadian co-operative literature, and she was a winner for Best Coverage of the Arts by the Canadian Community Newspapers Association. She is the author of a credit union history book and her first novel, Jazz with Ella (2012), based on her student experiences in Russia. Her short stories have appeared in Canadian Living, Chatelaine and Room.


The Co-op Revolution tells the fascinating story of how grassroots activists at the vanguard of the 1970s whole-food movement, through hard work and a strong commitment to food for people, not for profit, created gender-equitable jobs and sustainable workplaces that left enduring legacies. Kate Bird, author of Vancouver in the Seventies: Photos from a Decade That Changed the City
The Co-op Revolution is the story of a small tribe of people working to make their dreams and beliefs a practical reality. Times have changed, dreams have evolved, but its increasingly important to remember an era gone by that sourced so much of what we take for granted in our lives today. Get comfy, crack open a jar of your favourite preserves and enjoy this taste of history. Rick Scott, musician
