For all those who have enjoyed Dr. David Shanahan’s articles on local history that have appeared regularly in the NG Times, the good news is that they, and others, have been compiled into a new 200-page book called “Stories from the South Branch”.  The stories cover the history of North Grenville from before the arrival of  European settlers up to the year 2000, and range from the serious to the mysterious. The people, places and events that colour our history are written in David’s conversational style, but with a depth of knowledge that only a professional historian with his decades of experience can bring.
The Brandon Press, which is publishing the book, is a local publishing house which has produced more than a dozen titles by local authors since 2008.
The book costs $20 and will be available to buy early in December, just in time for Christmas gift-buying. Copies of “Stories of the South Branch” can be pre-ordered by calling 613-258-5083, or e-mailing
