Regional Archives Debuts History Book

On April 26th I popped by the Museum for a book launch and the opening of a new exhibit, both entitled Flying High. The South Peace Regional Archives (SPRA) had just wrapped up their AGM and were unveiling their book detailing the history of Grande Prairie from 1958 to 2008.

Flying High is a full colour book packed with pictures and information from the SPRA, Isebel Campbell's book Grande Prairie: Capitol of the Peace and the Daily Herald-Tribune archives.

The Archives are of course launching the book as part of the City's 50th Anniversary celebrations and they have printed a fairly limited run. If you are looking to pick up a copy (which I'd really recommend you do) you can get one at the museum for just $15 and also take in the exhibit of the same name.

Any, when you pick up Flying High on you museum visit you might as well also pick up the SPRA first publication; "Grande Prairie City" A Pictorial History from 1906-1958 ... after all you want to have the whole set right?

If you can't make it down to the museum you can probably contact the archives and ask them to send you one. All the contact info you'll need is here: www.southpeacearchives.org
