Audrey's Books.

Audreys Books

  • Audrey’s Books
  • Where: Edmonton
  • Owners: Steve and Sharon Budnarchuk

The store was founded in 1975, but it can trace its roots to the first independent bookstore opened in 1956 by Mel Hurtig. One of Audrey’s bestselling books is Homes: A Refugee Story by Abu Bakr al Rabeeah and Winnie Yeung, published by Freehand Books. As Sharon Budnarchuk, the co-owner of the store, says: “It is an account of the horrors of living during a war in Syria told by a 10-year-old boy who loves soccer, video games and his friends, to his teacher Winnie, here in Edmonton. This young boy’s story should be read by all of us to help us understand the horrors of war and the immigrant experience. What a wonderful addition this boy is to our Canadian family.”
