Special to The Lake Report

The Friends of Fort George are excited to announce our fourth online book club, which starts the week of Jan. 25.

After the success of our first three book clubs, where over 50 people participated online and through email, we are excited to host another book club for the months of February and March.

Join our Facebook group called Friends of Fort George – Book Club (https://www.facebook.com/groups/522354385139308/) where we will be spending time learning about Niagara’s early history.

If you are not on Facebook, but would like to join the discussion, we will also be hosting a book club through email.

The fourth book we will be looking at is “Hoping for the Best, Preparing for the Worst: Everyday Life in Upper Canada, 1812-1814,” by historian Dorothy Duncan.

If you would like to join us, we have copies of the book available through our online gift shop and offer free front porch delivery to residents of Niagara-on-the-Lake.

We will be posting questions, quotes and pictures each week to this group, you can join us for some historical fun from the comfort of your home.

 We can also offer mail orders for other books and items in the store. Visit our online store at https://friendsoffortgeorge.square.site or email us at giftshop@friendsoffortgeorge.ca for more info.

You can follow our main pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for daily historical updates.
