May General Meeting – Guest Speaker Merilyn Simonds

May 19 @ 7:30 PM 8:30 PM EDT

Ms Simonds is about to release her new book Lousie de Kiriline and the Songbirds of Pimisi Bay.
In 1935, Louise de Kiriline Lawrence, born into Swedish aristocracy and survivor of the Russian Civil War, escaped the hustle of Quintmania after a year as nurse-in-charge of the world-famous Dionne babies and retreated to her wilderness cabin on the Mattawa River. There, she discovered birds, the life history of many of them a mystery at the time. Training herself in the art of observation and ornithology, she published ground-breaking studies and wrote six books and scores of magazine stories.

On Sunday 15 May 2:00 to 4:00 pm, Ms Simonds will host a book launch at Coopers’ Croft Barn, 1777 Middle Road, Kingston
Refreshments, book sales, launch of video: Woman, Watching: Louise de Kiriline Lawrence & the Songbirds of Pimisi Bay.
Short talk/reading at 3:00 pm
