September 29 – October 1, 2017

Annapolis Basin Conference Centre,

Cornwallis, Nova Scotia

Author Presentation: Jon Tattrie, author and journalist – Saturday, September 30th 10:30-11:45

Who was Edward Cornwallis and what was he doing when he founded Halifax?  Author and journalist Jon Tattrie spent years digging through the evidence and will introduce you to the man who gave Cornwallis its name – and who gave Nova Scotia an enduring controversy that cuts to the core of our identity.

Jon Tattrie’s ancestors arrived in Halifax in 1752 as part of the Foreign Protestants welcomed by Edward Cornwallis.  He’s published seven books, including Cornwallis: The Violent Birth of HalifaxThe Hermit of Africville; and Daniel Paul: Mi’kmaq Elder.
