Reader Be Thou Also Ready: The William Fawcett Murder

Event Details

The final in our series on Local History Mysteries in partnership with the Family Resource Centre. In 1832, wealthy Sackville farmer William Fawcett was shot through his kitchen window. His murder remains unsolved to this day, but the family dynamics and events that led to his death are fascinating and were recounted in a book by Robert James published in 2000 and a play produced by Live Bait Theatre in 2015, both titled Reader Be Thou Also Ready.

Local author Charlie Scobie will read from the book and talk about the events around the murder. Those in attendance will have a chance to win a copy of the book. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.
