In the Morrin Centre’s upcoming Connecting Through Culture event, Steven L. Cameron, co –founder of Coirneal Cealteach (an Irish Heritage group) and former Vice President of the Literary & Historical Society of Quebec, introduces his first book, Hill Search, which gives the real story of Robert Corrigan’s 1855 murder.

“Ribbonmen in the hills, armed Orangemen on the roads, body snatching, a lost cemetery, secret burials, intimidation & faction fights? Hill Search is this and more. The author resets the story, introducing us to new characters, and corrects the many errors ‘out there’ about what really happened. Set in the hills southwest of Quebec City, Hill Search is also the story of our early ancestor settlers.”

Passionate about preserving the Irish footprint of the early settlers, this rendering of the Robert Corrigan Story is the first in a series of local stories to be published. Five other murders, a few local 1837 Anglo Patriotes, the arrival of cholera in the area, and the story of the settlement of the Craig’s Road are but a few of the challenges of the next publication. He lives with his wife, Diane, on Tir-Na-N’Og, Ste. Agatha de Lotbiniere.

Tickets are available free of charge through morrin.org, or by calling 418-694-9147.

Tickets free of charge – please reserve in advance.
