The Friends of Fort George will host a second online book club in June, this time exploring the untold stories of women in the War of 1812.

“After the success of our first book club, where over 50 people participated online and through email, we are excited to host another book club throughout the month of June,” Amanda Gamble, executive director of Friends of Fort George, said in a media release.

The club is hosted on Facebook, where organizers will post questions, quotes and pictures about the featured book starting the week of June 1.

This month’s book is “In the Midst of Alarms: The Untold Story of Women and the War of 1812.”

Anyone who is interested can participate by joining the Facebook group “Friends of Fort George – Book Club”.

For those who are not on Facebook, but would like to join the discussion, the book club will also be hosted through email.

Copies of the book are available by mail order, with a 10 per cent discount for NOTL residents throughout May and June, as well as free porch delivery.

The book can be ordered at https://friendsoffortgeorge.square.site or by emailing giftshop@friendsoffortgeorge.ca.

Inquiries on how to participate can be sent to admin@friendsoffortgeorge.ca.
