Since launching her book Westmount: The Tie that Binds the Twin Cities back in November, the Library’s Head of Special Collections, Susan Mavor, has received a flurry of invitations from community groups interested in learning more about the Westmount neighbourhood and its history. Mavor has three speaking engagements during the months of March and April.
Mavor will be on Waterloo’s main campus to present as part of Renison's Peer Learning At Renison (PEAR) program in April. PEAR is an adult learning program open to all members of the Kitchener-Waterloo community "who are looking for an active and engaging learning experience."
PEAR Talk - "Vintage Westmount"
April 13 at Renison College
Description: For a general audience, Susan Saunders Mavor will discuss her research methods and the interesting stories she uncovered while writing her very successful book : Westmount – The Tie that Binds the Twin Cities
Mavor was also the featured speaker at the Waterloo Region Museum earlier this month as part of the Museum’s TALKS Series and she will be speaking at the end of the month in a private engagement for Kitchener Conestoga Rotary Club.
Westmount – The Tie that Binds the Twin Cities: An Illustrated History of Westmount’s 100 Years is available to purchase at the University of Waterloo Bookstore and other local bookstores.
