Ottawa Branch Meeting Saturday April 20

Saturday, April 20, 13:00 – 15:00
City of Ottawa Archives, 100 Tallwood Drive, Room 115

Free refreshments (cookies, tea, coffee, juice) and networking.

Anne Raina will be speaking about her book, Clara's Rib, co-authored with her sister Clara.

Clara's Rib is the true story of a young girl growing up in a tuberculosis hospital. Clara entered the Royal Ottawa Sanatorium in 1939 when she was 12 and was discharged for the final time in 1952, just after turning 26 years of age. Anne will also talk about how she came to an understanding of this disease that ravaged her family. People of all ages will be drawn into the evolving seasons of Clara's life of courage, faith, pranks, laughter, first love, despair and hope from the time she enters the San as a pre-teen until her departure as a young woman in her mid-twenties. Discover why, when Clara left the San for the last time, one of her own ribs was packed in her suitcase.

This meeting will be simulcast for members who can't join us in person.
