Talking Acadian

John Chetro-Szivos, of Fitchburg, MA, has written Talking Acadian: Communication, Work and Culture.
The book provides a look into the lives of French-Speaking American Acadians, particularly those who left eastern Canada to settle in Massachusetts in the 1960s. It begins with a description of a fall fair at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church in Gardner and goes on to explain the role of the church in the ethnic identity of the Acadian community.
