The wonderful old Morrin Centre, which mainly serves the
small English population of Quebec City, welcomed me.
I spoke about The Pilgrim in the beautiful library.
The balcony is crammed with books.
The splendid and attentive, audience enjoyed it all.
Afterwards, many queued to get their books signed.
I signed a book for Babs, wife to my old BCS buddy,
Then I was interviewed by the Quebec Chronicle

Set in 1896 along the isolated Lower North Shore of Quebec,
this page-turning romantic novel follows the adventures --
many harrowing -- of a novice clergyman by the name of Jack Alford.
The character is inspired by Paul Almond's real uncle, Reverend Jack
Almond. Paul Almond, now 81, summers in Shigawake, in the Gaspé,
and for the past ten years there, he has been writing a
not-so-fictional account of his family's 200-year
long pioneering history in this province. This latest book, called
The Pilgrim, was launched today in Quebec City.
