Ross Murray To Speak In Quebec City

Ross Murray To Speak In Quebec City

Quick note: Feb. 10. Good to go.

These were the words emailed to AngloStore.com recently from Ross Murray (who is he?  I hear some of you chuntering aloud).

These few words were welcome words indeed as Quebec City English bookstore, AngloStore.com, had been chasing Ross for a while (for literary purposes only, you understand) and this was confirmation that he’d finally agreed to leave the comfort and solitude of the Eastern Townships for an evening of merriment in ‘La Capitale Nationale’.

So on Thursday February 10th 2011, Ross will be appearing at Quebec High School to talk about his life, tell a few stories and sign a copy of his book if you feel moved enough to purchase one.

There is no obligation to do so, however, Ross, his wife, four kids, five cats, two dogs and and probably a hamster, are practically starving and need the money, so any help would be appreciated.

Ross Murray moved to Quebec Province from Nova Scotia and became the editor and then owner of The Stanstead Journal, an English weekly in the Eastern Townships.

At the Journal, Ross began writing a weekly humour column, which soon became a permanent fixture, mainly because there was no one around to stop him.

After running the paper with his partner and then solo, Ross sold the Journal in 2003 and performed freelance and translation work. Since 2005 he has worked full-time as communications coordinator at Stanstead College, a private high school.

Since 2004, Ross has written a weekly humour column in The Sherbrooke Record, Quebec’s only English daily outside Montreal.

In 2009, he was named Best Columnist by the Quebec Community Newspapers Association.

Ross also records a weekly radio column for CBC Quebec City’s afternoon show “Breakaway.”

Mr Murray (as he’s known when he’s in trouble) is an author too. And not just any old author either – he wrote the stupidly funny You’re Not Going to Eat That, Are You? A collection of his newspaper columns, published in June 2010 by Townships Publications Cantons.

You can come and meet Ross and hear him talk at the AngloStore.com event…
