Henry & Self at the Courtenay & District Museum

“Henry & Self” is an illustrated lecture presented by historian Kathryn Bridge.  The “Self” refers to Sarah Crease who arrived in British Columbia with her young family in 1860.

The detailed journals, letters and artwork she would create over the next half-century as she and her husband, Henry, established themselves in the New World, offer a rich window into the private life and views of an English colonist in British Columbia.

In a world where history is still primarily told by men, “Henry & Self” is a woman’s story told in her own words.

Admission to the evening is $5 per Historical Society member; $6 non-members (plus GST). Advance tickets are strongly recommended as the museum lecture series frequently sells out. FMI: 250-334-0686 ext. 5.

This presentation is made possible with financial assistance from The Canada Council for the Arts through The Writers’ Union of Canada.
