Authors Night on August 9 2021 at 7pm

Enjoy a glass of something you like, bring snacks for you to munch on!

It’s a Covid19 Authors Night Webinar. Not as good as getting together but what can we do… We are thrilled to have three authors this time.

Dr. John C. Carter is a frequently published historian and author and is currently the Peninsula Director of the Bruce County Historical Society. His book, The
Perils and Pitfalls of the Steamer Ploughboy, A Story of its Construction to Destruction, provides a complete history of this vessel from 1851 to 1870. During this period, the Ploughboy sailed on Lakes Erie, Huron and Superior. It was the first regularly scheduled steamer to visit ports between Sarnia and Southampton. The book has many interesting stories about disasters, murder, the near death of John A. MacDonald and other events which were associated with her 19 years sailing on the Great Lakes.

Cori Mordaunt studied fashion at Ryerson, English at the University of Toronto and graduated in library techniques from Seneca College. She worked in a fil library, a business library and a public library. While studying at the Institute of Children’s Literature, Cori wrote the first draft of her historical fiction novel, Keep the Light Burning which was published August 15, 2020 by the Brucedale Press. Cori’s work has been placed in two anthologies, a student’s guide, and Nature Friend magazine.

Lynne Porter is a keen student of local history and the summer of 2017 her book about the pioneers who settled in her community was published as OXENDEN, The Way It Was. Currently, Lynne is adding the finishing touches to her second book, BIG BAY/NORTH KEPPEL, The Way It Was, featuring stories, photographs and drawings depicting early life there.
