Everyone is invited to the book launch for the Early Music in Ladysmith British Columbia 1902-1912 by local author Dr. Brian D. Bornhold will be held at Salamander Books in Ladysmith on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 from 2 to 4 p.m.. The book explores the earliest days of music in Ladysmith just as the town was being born, fresh from the forest, building its houses, businesses, roads, railroad lines and wharves. Many historic photos have not been published before.
The author and members of the Ladysmith & District Historical Society will be available to answer questions and sign books. Light refreshments will be served. The book sells for $20 with all proceeds going to the Ladysmith & District Historical Society and their work in preserving and promoting heritage.
The book is also available at the Ladysmith Archives and Museum, the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce, and the Ladysmith Community Marina Welcome Centre. For more information phone 250-245-0100, info [at] ladysmithhistoricalsociety [dot] ca
