WHAT

Join Biblioasis at the Walkerville Brewery for a launch of two new local history books: David Newman’s Postcards From Essex County and Patrick Brode’s The River & The Land!

David Newman’s Postcards From Essex County is the long-awaited follow-up to the popular Postcards from the Past, published by Walkerville Publishing in 2005. Boasting over 315 cards featuring the churches, factories, fairgrounds, houses, beaches, trains and cars of the old towns in Essex County, this is a beautiful gift book in hardcover with full-colour illustrations.

And with The River & The Land, Patrick Brode, author of The Slasher Killings and Unholy City, gives us an authoritative history of Windsor up to 1900. Featuring sections on Windsor’s role in the American Civil War, Confederation and street-car manufacturing, and chronicling the cultural tensions between the French, English, Irish, and Scottish settlers of the region, The River & The Land is a thorough, compelling and readable history, sure to set the bar for local historians for years to come.

Doors open at 6 and readings/presentations will begin at 7. There will be snacks available and you are of course encouraged to partake in a few of the Walkerville Brewery’s famous beers. Books will be available for sale, cash or credit.
