The Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead is hosting an Island History Sunday Brunch Series from 11:00 am–1:30 pm at the Homestead. Brunch, to be served at 11 am, will feature local produce from the Homestead’s own garden, and will be followed by an informal talk on selected aspects of Island history. The new series is a part of the Homestead’s 2017 Fundraising Campaign; speakers are generously donating their speaker fee to this campaign.

Brunches will be held alternate Sundays (July 30, August 13, and August 27) and will feature SAMPF Board member and novelist, Dr. Sile Post, current PEI Poet Laureate Deirdre Kessler, and SAMPF Board member and Island Historian, Dr. Ryan O’Connor. The always popular performers and speakers, Melissa Mullen and Rob Maclean are scheduled for October. Additional speakers for September will be posted online at www.macphailhomestead.ca.

Dr. Sile Post’s talk on July 30, entitled “Macphail’s Homesteading Lifestyle: A Model for Modern Island Living” will contextualize for Islanders, the local, rural, homesteading lifestyle, advocated throughout Macphails’ published works as a vision for Island living in today’s world.

Deirdre Kessler’s talk on August 13, entitled, “Sir Andrew Macphail and L.M. Montgomery: The Emotional Textures of the Lives of Two Distinguished Islanders,” will provide glimpses into the lives, poetry and the writings of Macphail and Montgomery.
