Pitt Meadows Book 2nd Printing

Wednesday, April 21, 2010 posted by james

It looks like we are going to a second printing of the book “Pitt Meadows: Celebrating the History of our Great City” for May 2010.

I originally conceived of this book in 2006 when working with the Pitt Meadows development services department. We were preparing for the municipality’s re-incorporation as a city and looking for ways to promote community involvement. The majority of the text is a re-print of Edith McDermott’s 1967 book “Pitt Meadows: Through the Ages”. The student essay entries lead off the book, and the history is rounded out by a chapter outlining the history of the Katzie written by Terai Short, and a chapter covering the entire history of the Pitt Meadows Municipality up to and including the re-incorporation written by Leslie Norman from the Pitt Meadows Museum and myself.

News on the release date when I hear back from the printer!
