Roy MacGregor at the Library


Please join us at the Beaverbrook Branch on Wednesday, October 2nd at 2:00pm as we welcome acclaimed Canadian author Roy MacGregor, author of bestselling fiction and non-fiction based on the Canadian experience. 

One of Canada's most gifted storytellers, he is an Officer of the Order of Canada. In his new book "Original Highways", Mr. MacGregor shares the history of Canadian rivers and waterways and how they shaped our country, long before the national railroad was built. He shares his experiences travelling those rivers, and explores our ongoing relationship with one of Canada's most precious resources.
