We're pleased to announce The Acadian Coloring Book is now available to purchase!
This custom-made coloring book celebrates the daily lives of young Acadians from the 1930s/1940s to today. The Acadian Coloring Book explores Acadian culture and daily life in the Valley through 43 pages of original illustrations and franglais text on each page composed specifically with non-fluent readers in mind. You can take a look at select pages on our Projects page.
The generous support of our local sponsors and grant funders allowed us to deliver free copies to all the schools in the St John Valley, enough for every Pre-K - Grade 12 student to receive their own copy. We're excited to share this resource with an entire generation at once.
Having reached the schools, copies are now available for sale! Copies are $15 +$5 shipping and handling, payable in cash or checks.

We're a small organization of mostly older volunteers. We appreciate everyone's cooperation with our slightly old-school sales methods that match our capabilities.
The shipping and handling fee is the same no matter how many copies you get. There is no shipping and handling fee if you come pick up your copies in Grand Isle.
Wholesale pricing is available for businesses or individuals looking to re-sell to the public. Please contact the historical society for wholesale pricing.
We're a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The proceeds from all coloring book sales will be dedicated funds that go towards printing more copies. The goal is to always be able to print more when we need them.
