Join us for the launch of:

Robert Wilkins's
Montreal 1909

From the Archives of the old Montreal Star, the author has chosen 1909 to be the year he would use to portray old Montreal. We see birth and death, joy and tragedy, sickness and health – a study of everyday life as reported in the newspaper.

John Kalbfleisch’s
A Stain Upon the Land

Montreal was thunder-struck when, in 1827, prominent merchant Robert Watson was shot to death in his own home. Nearly two centuries have passed, and still no one knows who did it. Now, in this blend of fact and fiction, the author lays out who might have killed Watson, and why.
