A successful fundraiser was organized by Mill Street Books who invited Charlotte Gray to make a presentation about her new book The Promise of Canada. As Charlotte preserves our Canadian history in her books, the $450 which was raised will assist the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum in preserving local artifacts.
Mill Street Books is honoured to welcome Charlotte Gray to Almonte on December 4th at 1:00pm. She is one of Canada’s best-known writers, and author of ten acclaimed books of literary non-fiction.
In her most recent book The Promise of Canada: 150 Years — People and Ideas That Have Shaped Our Country, the author has woven together compelling portraits of nine influential Canadians and set them within the larger context of our shared history. Readers will get to know characters ranging from George-Étienne Cartier, Emily Carr and Tommy Douglas to Elijah Harper, Naheed Nenshi and Shad They will learn about how these people’s ideas developed from their own experiences, and how those ideas contributed to our sense of Canada. The book is lavishly illustrated so readers can also enjoy a visual narrative of Canada’s development.
We welcome history lovers and proud Canadians of all ages to Charlotte Gray’s presentation and book signing. This event is a fundraiser for the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. Tickets are available by calling Mill Street Books at 613-256-9090
