Description

The Morrin Centre is at the heart of Quebec City's history. It once housed Quebec's common jail, the Presbyterian-run Morrin College, and the scholarly activities of the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec. Today, it is home to the city's main English-language cultural center and library. The colorful stories of each of these institutions reveal unknown aspects of the tumultuous history of Quebec's capital city and bring some of its forgotten characters back to life. This book takes you from the dark prison cells on the building's ground floor to the stately library and college classrooms above it. Did you know that Quebec's first French-language novelist, Philippe Aubert de Gaspé, did time in the jail, that Morrin College admitted women on equal terms with men some sixty years before Université Laval, or that the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec helped establish Canada's National Archives?
