Shoreline celebrates Montreal’s 375th

Shoreline celebrates Montreal’s 375th Two new books explore the city’s past

John Kalbfleisch’s
A Stain Upon the Land
Montreal was thunder-struck when, in 1827, prominent merchant Robert Watson was shot to death in
his own home. Nearly two centuries have passed, and still no one knows who did it. Now, in this blend of fact
and fiction, the author lays out who might have killed Watson, and why.

Robert Wilkins’s
Montreal 1909
From the Archives of the old Montreal Star, the author has chosen 1909 to be the year he would use to portray old Montreal.
We see birth and death, joy and tragedy, sickness and health – a study of everyday life as reported
in the newspaper.
When: Sunday, June 4 | From 1:30 to 4:30 pm
Where: At the Centre Culturel Georges-Vanier
2450, rue Workman – Montréal (Québec) H3J 1L8
