The Gatineau Valley Historical Society
The Gatineau Valley Historical Society will host An Evening with Brian Doyle that will be held at the Larrimac Golf & Tennis Club, 1148 rte. 105, Chelsea Quebec on Monday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m.
Brian will talk about and read from his 2013 e-book Confessions of a Depression Baby, a series of 24 essays he wrote for the Ottawa Citizen about growing up in the 1930s.
A former Glebe Collegiate teacher in Ottawa, Brian is best known for his grainy young-adult novels about growing up in Ottawa and along the Gatineau River, and as a consummate storyteller, his 24 essays are no less engaging than the vivid scenes he painted for readers in such books as Angel Square, Up to Low and Easy Avenue.
