Linda Peterat will be presenting as part of the Heritage Speaker Series – Fall 2022 hosted by the Quesnel and District Museum & Archives.
Linda Peterat will be speaking about her new book, From Denmark to the Cariboo: The Epic Journey of the Lindhard Sisters, the captivating account of the lives of three sisters who left their home in Stege, Denmark, in the 1870s due to war, political turmoil, and limited opportunities, and sought out new lives in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. Coming of age in Europe, the Lindhard sisters had aspirations that were restricted by societal norms about what women could and should be and do. Their lives reveal much about the complex social fabric of early British Columbia and the unsung contributions of women.
Each season, the Quesnel Museum hosts presentations about recent historical publications and topics of interest. Admission is by donation and books are available for purchase. More details about the Heritage Speaker Series.- Fall 2022.
