New York Times best-selling author, Steve Berry, visiting Stratford.

Steve_Berry_webSteve Berry, the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author of more than a dozen books, will debut the first international fundraiser of his History Matters foundation August 12-13 in Stratford. Berry will raise funds at the Stratford Town Centre through a writer’s workshop and a public lecture.

Steve Berry’s books have been translated into 40 languages with 18 milllion copies in 51 countries. They consistently appear in the top echelon of The New York Times, USA Today, and Indie bestseller lists.

Doug Kelly, Chair of Stratford’s Heritage Committee, said, “Not only is this an opportunity to help our committee preserve the town’s heritage, but I have been a huge fan of Steve’s books for years. Stratford is quite privileged that History Matters accepted our invitation.”

History lies at the heart of every Steve Berry novel. This passion for history inspired Steve and his wife Elizabeth to establish History Matters, a nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding historic preservation. Since 2009 Steve and Elizabeth have crossed the United States raising money through lectures, receptions, dinners, and their popular writer’s workshops. To date, they have raised over $750,000 for various historic preservation projects.  Their visit to Stratford represents the first time they’ve done a History Matters event outside the United States.  The hope is this will be the first of many international projects.

All of the funds raised will be kept in Stratford to aid heritage projects, helping further Stratford’s commitment to preserving our heritage. The first project to benefit will be the publication of a book highlighting the service of Stratford enlistments in the First World War. Last year, the heritage committee hired a UPEI history student to research the service files preserved in the National Archives, however additional funds are required to complete the editing, layout and printing. The publication of this book will commemorate the 100th anniversary of Canada’s participation in WWI.
The following events will be taking place during Steve Berry’s visit.

Writer’s Workshop with Steve Berry on August 13, 2014,S 9am – 1pm, Stratford Town Centre, Cost $75

Public Lecture with Steve Berry on August 13, 2014, 7:30pm, Stratford Town Centre
