Alun Hughes, a longtime member of Brock’s Department of Geography, had an enormous appetite for local history.
Between 2003 and his untimely death in 2013, the trained cartographer wrote extensively about the geography and history of the Niagara region.
Hoping to honour his passion, Hughes’ former colleagues have come together to release a book of his essays, History Made in Niagara, and will host a launch for the publication on Wednesday, May 29.
The book was compiled by Hughes’ former colleagues from the Department of Geography and Tourism Studies, Professors Mike Ripmeester and David Butz and retired cartographer Loris Gasparotto.
Everyone is welcome to attend the free event, to be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at Brock’s Pond Inlet.
History Made in Niagara can be purchased at the launch for $35 (cash only).
More information about the event can be found on ExperienceBU or by calling 905-688-5550 x3484.
