Legion hosts book launch

The Cloverdale Legion hosts a book launch for one of its own Wednesday night, when Robert W. Mackay reads from his new novel, Soldiers of the Horse.The historical novel is based on the experiences of Tom Mackay, the author’s father, who was a member of the Canadian First World War cavalry regiment, Lord Stathcona’s Horse.The author spent years researching the era of the Great War and the cavalry. “Weaving emotions generated by wind, rain and memories of scars (physical and emotional) left with his father, Mackay ably translates his impressions into a period tale which returns the reader to a by-gone era,” Cloverdale Reporter columnist Ursula Maxwell-Lewis wrote.At 7 p.m. March 2, the author, a legion member, will give a short reading from the novel. There will also be a few photographs of the cavalry on display
