Recognition for Lucille Campey

Lucille Campey, author of numerous books on British, and soon to be Irish, immigration to Canada has won the  British Association for Canadian Studies Prix du Quebec 2016 as an independent scholar.
The award was presented by the Government of Quebec on Friday, April 22nd at the BACS 2016 annual conference, held at the British Library in London, UK.
BIFHSGO will once again welcome Lucille as a speaker at its conference in September with the Ottawa launch of her latest book, the first of an Irish Immigrants trilogy, that challenges the view that the Irish immigrant saga was primarily driven by dire events in Ireland.
