Wolfville Historical Society and Acadia Art Gallery Present: Leo Deveau
400 Years in 365 Days: A Daily Calendar of Events from Nova Scotia’s History
November 22 at 2 pm
Acadia University Art Gallery, Wolfville
For the 150th anniversary of Confederation, local historian Leo Deveau decided to update, revise, and extend the Nova Scotia Book of Days, originally published by Shirley Elliott in 1979. The result was 400 Years in 365 Days: a fun, trivia-filled record of the people and communities of Nova Scotia
over the past 400 years.
Leo has assembled over one thousand entries reflecting events in the histories of virtually every group and settlement in the province, covering a range of interests from politics and the military to sports and the arts. These entries are highlighted with over 100 visuals, including full colour photos, paintings, drawings, and archival objects.
This informative, entertaining and illuminating volume is a great reference book and an excellent gift for anyone interested in Nova Scotia’s colourful past and lively present.
