when tobacco was king.jpgJoin us at the Chatham Branch of CKPL on Wednesday, October 17 at 7:00 pm to meet Allen and hear him discuss the tobacco industry and the Canadian Leaf Tobacco Company, which was founded in Chatham in 1925.

This is Paul's first book and, as the son of the former President of the Canadian Leaf Tobacco Company, he shares his father's personal records, his own research and personal memories, and knowledge of the tobacco business, gained by growing up so close to the tobacco industry.

Attendees of this fun literary event can ask Allen questions and bring copies of their books to be signed. Books will also be available for purchase. This promises to be an informative and interesting evening.
