Official North Bay launch of Francoise Noel's new book - Thursday, October 15, 7 pm

Dr. Francoise Noel's upcoming book, Family and Community Life in Northeastern Ontario: The interwar years, will have its North Bay area launch on Thursday, October 15, 7-8:30 PM, at the NB Public Library at 271 Worthington Street E.

This book is based on extensive interviews and archival research and reconstructs how various individuals and groups lived together and sometimes came into conflict in the years before the Second World War. As the title indicates, Dr. Noel is especially interested in family life and its rituals, a subject she treated so well in her previous book, Family Life and Sociability in Upper and Lower Canada.

If you live in the North Bay area, and especially if you grew up here, this book will be of special interest to you.

Books will be available for sale at the launch and also at Gulliver's, 157 Main Street W.
