In Quebec City with the Lit&Hist

Quebec City friends and readers: Thursday, October 16 I'm heading to la vieille capitale, as keynote speaker at the Literary Feast, the annual fundraising gala of the Morrin Centre in the heart of the Haute-Ville.

The Morrin Centre, home to the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec, founded 1824, is the "cultural hub" of the anglophone community of Quebec City. You may have read about it in Louise Penny's murder mystery Bury Your Dead.

Details and tickets for the Literary Feast here.  Fair warning: good cause/not cheap!

Happy to say, that's the same weekend as La Conference de Quebec, a scholarly conference on the Quebec Conference of 1864, organized by the Laval University Law School and the GRSP of U de Montreal.
SPEAKERS : Janet Ajzenstat – Éric Bédard – Michael Behiels – Philip Buckner – André Burelle – Marc Chevrier – Claude Couture – Graham Fraser – Rachel Chagnon – Louis-Georges Harvey – Stéphane Kelly – Guy Laforest – Christopher Moore – François Rocher – Paul Romney – Bruce Ryder – Anne Trépanier – Robert Vipond
