full_page_ad_7.5inx10in_-_meet_the_network_final.sm__0.pngMeet The Network: Profiles of Heritage Groups Across Quebec, as the new book is called, was edited by Matthew Farfan and Rod MacLeod, with articles by 18 different contributors. The 83-page softcover book offers a rare look at the groups and people - each one a member organization of QAHN – preserving and promoting the heritage and history of the English-speaking community.

Following a special launch event for the new book at Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre in Sherbrooke, QAHN president Grant Myers said that he is “delighted by the richness and quality of this new publication; this book is beautiful to look at and fun to read!”

QAHN executive director (and co-editor) Matthew Farfan said that he is “excited to be able to show off some of the inspiring work being done by QAHN’s far-flung member-museums, historical societies and other heritage groups,” adding that “people might be a bit surprised by the variety of work being done within our network.”

From houses dating back nearly three centuries to small museums with big stories to fully digital groups, members of Quebec’s heritage network from across all regions of the province are featured in this beautiful publication. Readers can learn how heritage volunteers navigate unexpected challenges, discover some of the intriguing and touching artefacts they care for, and get tips on some of the most fascinating objects and places to visit.

Lavishly illustrated in full colour, Meet The Network: Profiles of Heritage Groups Across Quebec sells for $20. To order your copy while supplies last, send payment by PayPal or e-transfer to [email protected], or by cheque to: QAHN, 3355 College, Sherbrooke, QC J1M 0B8.
