Women’s History Month

October is Women’s History Month. Who are the women behind the records in the BC Archives? I’m pleased to be discussing some stories of strong, resilient women, who walked these streets long before they were paved. Sunday, October 29th, 1 pm. With archivist Genevieve Weber and genealogist Diane Rogers. https://royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/visit/events/calendar/event/105512/womens-history-month-talk-women-bc-archives

The Chief Factor’s Daughter featured in Booksmack

The Chief Factor’s Daughter was a favourite pick at the Greater Victoria Public Library’s Booksmack event at the Belfry this spring. Librarians give speed reviews of their favourite books. This looks like a fun event, where librarians also showcase their sense of humour! I’ll get to one in future… http://gvpl.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Belfry-Booksmack-April-24-2017.pdf
