Morrin Centre Launch September 2012

The wonderful old Morrin Centre, which mainly serves the 
small English population of Quebec City, welcomed me.
I was introduced by the President Sovita Chandler.
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,
Hugh Bignell. 
Then I was interviewed by the Quebec Chronicle

Paul talks to the CBC about The Pilgrim

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 GaspĂ©, 
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.
