Event description

Description

David Vermette, a Massachusetts native, will discuss his new book about his family’s assimilation in the U.S. He is a researcher, writer, and speaker on the history and identity of the descendants of French North America. David wrote, “Americans don’t think of Canada as a source of potential terrorists—speaking a foreign tongue, serving a foreign religion, and invading their country. But when a million French-Canadians crossed the border between 1840 and 1930, many seeking work in New England’s burgeoning textile industry, they were cast as foot soldiers in an alleged Roman Catholic plot.”
