New Liskeard Fall Fair Sept 13-15, 2012
As part of the New Liskeard Fall Fair, on Saturday after the parade, our very own Laura Landers and Lois Pollard will be at our table in Riverside Place to sign copies of their books. As the Highway Book Shop has closed and does not seem to be re-opening as a book store, Lois' book become the enduring record of its contribution to the area. Laura Landers books: Slices of Temiskaming and Tableaux du Témiskaming will be available and she will be there to sign these new books.If you are at all local- the Fall Fair is a great time for all. Hope to see you there.
