Memoirs of the English-speaking community book launch

VEQ_LogoVoice of English-speaking Québec (VEQ) and The Megantic English-speaking Community Development Corporation (MCDC) are pleased to invite you to a press conference to mark the launch of “Memoirs of the English-speaking community” written by Secondary IV students from A.S. Johnson High School [Thetford Mines],  Quebec High School and St. Patrick’s High School [Québec City].

In the fall of 2012, ninety-one seniors and students from our English-speaking community and schools participated in the compilation of this memoir. Through the voices of our seniors, students undertook a personalized discovery of their local heritage. Québec City and the Chaudière-Appalaches region have always held strong English-speaking communities, today we bridge stories of their past to the present for all generations to share.
