The Four Haig-Brown children – Celia

Life with father: Haig-Brown siblings reveal what they learned

The lecture will take place on Saturday evening, Sept. 29, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

The Campbell River Arts Council, the Haig-Brown Institute and the Museum at Campbell River are partnering this year to present the 2012 Haig-Brown Memorial Lecture.

The lecture will take place on Saturday evening, Sept. 29, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. This year’s lecture, entitled What We Learned, will be delivered by all four of the Haig-Brown siblings, Valerie, Mary, Alan and Celia. This will be the first time the four Haig-Brown children will deliver a talk together.

The Haig-Brown Memorial Lecture Series was created by the Arts Council in 2009. The intention is to honour the legacy of both Roderick Haig-Brown and Ann Haig-Brown (nee Elmore). Roderick Haig-Brown (1908-1976) applied his passion equally to fishing, writing, conservation, and public service and left behind a strong legacy of literary excellence, centered on the rivers of British Columbia. His work represented an early environmental voice.  Ann Elmore (1908-1990) was a major force for social justice issues in Campbell River, notably around the challenges facing women. The Ann Elmore Transition House in Campbell River is named in her honour.

The Haig-Brown Memorial Lectures were created to provide an annual forum for writers to inspire a new generation with their vision for the environment, social issues and literary excellence. A signed and numbered collectable chapbook of the 2012 Lecture has been produced and will be available at the Museum. Call the Museum at 287-3103 to reserve a seat for this historic event. The cost for the Lecture is $7.
