Les Carrières de calcaire de Bedford et de Saint-Armand by Philippe Fournier
In his 6th book, Philippe Fournier tells us about the fabulous and scientific geological origin of the quarries in our area as well as the commercial growth that has been linked to them since the 19th century. This publication is in collaboration with Mr. Philippe Fournier and the Missisquoi Historical Society and generously funded by Graymont (QC) Inc. and Omya Canada Inc.
The official launch will take place on Saturday July 7, 2018 at 2 pm at the Dr. Adrien-Tougas Public Place in downtown Bedford during the Rendez-Vous Country event; the book will be subsequently sold at the Missisquoi Museum.
We thank Mr. Fournier for including us in his passion for the history of our beautiful region.
