November 2023

Location:  In-person meeting at Trafalgar/Pro Patria Legion, 411 Gorge Road East, Victoria BC.

Date: November 21, 2023

Time: 2:00 PM, Doors open at 1:30 PM.

We will have two Victoria authors discussing their published works.

  1. Linda Eversole 
  2. Linda Foubister

Linda Eversole is the author of “Stella: Unrepentant Madam” and “Victoria Unbuttoned, A Red-Light History of BC’s Capital City”.

In her books Linda Eversole explores Victoria’s complicated history of prostitution by focusing on the women who made a living from the world’s oldest profession.

The author will discuss her research with accompanying maps and     historical photos and will explain how she garnered the support she had from the descendants of some of her subjects.

Linda Foubister is the author of “The Key to Mythic Victoria”.

From the distant past when Hayls the Transformer changed the landscape, through the more recent past when modern Argonauts searched for the new El Dorado, to the present day, the myths and symbols of Victoria, BC, bring its hidden layers to life in the imaginations of the people.

Come join us for a fascinating presentation and don’t forget to purchase your tickets to the Christmas Luncheon too!

Please RSVP your attendance here no later than November 7th as refreshments will be served and we have to notify the vendor in advance.
