Remembering Glen Christie book released worldwide

 

Remembering Glen Christie - Paul Langan

I am happy to announce that my Remembering Glen Christie - The history of the Village of Glen Christie, Ontario and stories from those that lived there, is available worldwide.

If you live in the Waterloo Region you can purchase the book at Wordsworth Books in Waterloo. If you live local in Hespeler I might have a few copies so you can use the contact page on this website to inquire.

It is available as an e-book on Kobo. It is available worldwide as a paperback and e-book on Amazon.

I am working on three more local history books to be completed this year. They are:

  • Tales of Opera - Waterloo County/Region 1889-2020, 
  • Hespeler History - The Authorized Winfield Brewster Collection
  • Remembering Fisher Mills - The history of the hamlet of Fisher Mills, Ontario

Thanks for supporting local history books.
