Meet the Author

An accomplished illustrator and painter, Peter Manchester lives in Sackville, New Brunswick. His passion for discovering the magnificent in the mundane extends beyond hockey sticks into the realm of history, an interest enflamed by his experience as a museum curator. Totally without the aid of research, he illuminates the march of progress from pre-history to the post-rink life of the hockey stick. 50 Things to Make with a Broken Hockey Stick is his first foray into authorship.
