Book Launch: Our Roots Run Deep, by Jim MacCormack

December 3, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Saturday, Dec. 3
3-5 pm
McConnell Library (50 Falmouth St., Sydney)

First time author Jim MacCormack has documented his family’s history in the book ‘Our Roots Run Deep: One Family’s Story’. Jim is from a large family (one of ten children) and grew up in Whitney Pier, Cape Breton (circa 1950’s & 60’s). Although the history and memories are his, there are moments that resonate universally – a family story like many others.

Join Jim to swap stories, share memories and reminisce about growing-up. Everyone welcome.

**Books will be available for purchase & signing at the event and also at Cape Breton Curiosity Shop (292 Charlotte Street).

From the back cover of ‘Our Roots Run Deep’ by Jim MacCormack: “With humour and emotion, we encounter stories of goodness, hope, tragedy, and triumph of this “modern” family. The lessons taught, learned, and passed down through the generations should serve as a reminder of the importance of family values and their positive impact on generations to come.”
