Author Diane Armstrong will be in the store on Oct 16th from 6pm to 8pm to sign copies and talk about her book Mud, Muskeg & Mosquitoes!!
This historically factual creative non-fiction book concerns a remarkable woman who married and moved to ‘New Ontario’ in 1907 to become an outstanding community member, one of the first women elected to a School Board in Ontario, and mother to eight children. She was also the author's grandmother. More than mere history, this story recounts the difficulties with the mud, muskeg, mosquitoes Diane Armstrong and many other situations she dealt with to become a part of our history here in north-eastern Ontario. Diane Armstrong has taken her years of writing, researching and interviewing skills to write this compelling and factual account of her grandmother's life as it coincides with the development of the T&NO Railway in Northern Ontario and we share her life in great detail from 1900 to 1942.
