Frances Welwood book launch

@ Touchstones Nelson, Thursday, Oct. 27, 6:30-8 p.m.

Touchstones Nelson is hosting the launch of Frances Welwood’s book Passing Through Missing Pages: The Intriguing Story of Annie Ross Foster Hanley.

Annie Garland Foster was born in Fredericton, NB, in 1875. She was an educator, nurse, politician, social reformer, journalist, and biographer of Pauline Johnson.

But she was also a bit of a mystery. In this thoughtful and thorough biography, Frances Welwood follows her elusive subject from Fredericton to Nelson, giving historical context to Annie’s insightful and cinematic prose.

But most exciting of all, Welwood finally sheds light on the events and circumstances connecting Annie to a 1926 murder trial.

The author will be present and refreshments will be served.
