May Meeting, Lecture and Book Launch “SLAVE NARRATIVES TRANSCRIBED BY SUSANNA MOODIE”
 

The May meeting of the Peterborough Historical Society will feature a lecture and book launch.

Speakers Molly Blyth and Michael Peterman, editors of a forthcoming book, Mary Prince and Ashton Warner: Two Slave Narratives Transcribed by Susanna Moodie, will discuss their research and discoveries. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
