Cambridge author to publish historical book on lost town - Remembering Glen Christie

  Kitchener Today - Nathan Shubert -A Cambridge author is getting ready to publish a historical book on a local lost town, Glen Christie. Author Paul Langan told Kitchener Today in an interview that what initially started as a small booklet project in 1999 is now being turned into a novel that looks at the history of the small village which was just north of Hespeler, since its tear down in 1961. "Well I think people like to know about lost villages and all that, and the neatest thing about that is, that when it was torn down, the people there either moved to Guelph or Hespeler, and those kids are still alive now," said Langan.  To capture what the village was like when it was still around, Langan went out and talked to the remaining children from Glen Christie, who are now in their 60s and 70s.
