Them Days celebrates 40 years of telling Labrador's stories

Them Days, a quarterly magazine that is this year celebrating its 40th anniversary, gets by on the simple strategy of telling the stories of Labrador. What started out as a one-off anthology in 1975 now has a national and international following for its oral history. For nearly 30 years, Doris Saunders was the lynchpin of the publication and these days, Aimee Chaulk is the editor. The magazine is published out of Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

Volunteer Susan Felsberg told the CBC that, without Them Days, a lot of the stories would never have been told.
"They were stories that just went around the kitchen table and out the front door, but now its written and its there, and some people have a complete collection." 
As part of this year's 40th anniversary celebration, a number of special publications are planned throughout the year.
