    Tuesday, December 7th- Book Discussion with Author Bernice L. Rocque

    The Ponemah Years

    Walking in the Footsteps of My Mother

    Time: 11:00 a.m.

    A journey back to the Ponemah Mill and family life in 20th century Taftville illuminated the “essence” of the author’s French-Canadian mother, Gabrielle Picard, a weaver in the 1940’s.  Part memoir, part history, and part family portrait – this book is rich in photos and family stories.

    Author Bernice L. Rocque, a family historian and Norwich native, will be discussing her new book, The Ponemah Years: Walking in the Footsteps of My Mother.  Bernice was at the Rose City Senior in 2012 discussing her first book, Until the Robin Walks on Snow, (about her father’s Janovicz family).

    Both books will be available for purchase and signing for those interested.

    Please sign up at Reception if you will be attending.
