Heney, author of John Heney & Son: The Canadian Saga of an Ottawa Irish Family at Collected Works At Collected Works Bookstore, Wellington at Holland in Ottawa's Westboro neighbourhood. John Heney's writing underlines how interconnected our world is -- in so many dimensions! John Heney & Son, his third work, digs deep into the story of Ottawa to reveal a saga filled with twists and turns culled in archives from Dawson City to Jerusalem. His rich narrative of one family and its fate swirls around the growth of Ottawa from a backwater to a national capital, showing how so much of Canada's story, locally and across the country, is rooted in family lore. Come learn what colourful history surrounds you in Ottawa, just below the surface of today's reality. John will also refer to his first two books -- The Thunder Within: A True Story and Ladies and Gentlemen! Daring to Live What the Soul Already Knows.
